Allium sativum

"When it comes to exceptionally large, easy-to-work-with cloves, the porcelain garlic group karate kicks all rivals. This top-notch porcelain garlic produces 4-6 very large, rose-buff colored cloves per bulb. The cloves are a dream to work with (a huge time saver when making large quantities of elk sausage). Music garlic is medium-hot with a true garlic flavor.

Music has high levels of allicin, the sulfur-containing compound that provides garlic's antioxidant and antibacterial properties. If you eat garlic strictly for wellness purposes, this is the variety for you, especially if you consume it raw!
Plants are dark green, strong, and robust. Music grows very well in cold climates. Music has an exceptional shelf life for a hardneck, storing up to 9 months."
Description Source: Sundries Farm

Music averages about 6-11 bulbs per lb and 4-6 cloves per bulb.


Seed garlic sourced from Sundries Farm in Hagerman Valley, Idaho.

Storage instructions: Make sure to keep your garlic in a brown bag in a cool, dark, dry place until you are ready to plant it. 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal storage temperature. Air must be able to circulate freely around the bag. Do not store garlic in the refrigerator.

Sowing instructions: Garlic is best sown in the fall after the first light frost of the season. Bulbs should not be separated into cloves until just before planting. Sow with the point where the cloves attached to the bulb pointed down. We recommend mulching your garlic bed with a light layer of leaves to help with weed suppression and overwintering.
