Music Seed Garlic (Organic)
Hardneck Porcelain type
Music garlic has become the porcelain type garlic for other varieties to live up to. It consistently produces high yields of large, pure white bulbs with 6-8 pungent cloves per bulb. Extra large clove size makes it quick to process in the kitchen and also an excellent garlic variety for roasting whole. Medium spicy raw flavor mellows and becomes relatively sweet when cooked, making it a welcome addition to most meals. A favorite garlic variety on market farms across the northern US and Canada. Reportedly originated in Italy and brought over to Canada by Al Music in the 1980’s. Similar to other porcelains such as German White, German Extra Hardy, Premium Northern White.
Music seed garlic minimum bulb size is 2 inches wide (most are over 2.5″). Average 5-6 bulbs per pound, 6-8 cloves per bulb.
