This is a wonderful Porcelain hardneck type. Many bulbs will have only 4-6 cloves, saving time in the kitchen. Flavor is rich and bold with just the right amount of spiciness. Stores fairly well for a hardneck, lasting about 9 months - or until March or April in simple cool storage.
Another bonus of this variety is that it produces scapes, which are false flower stalks that can be used as a sort of green garlic (think bunching onions) in April and May. It is best to break these scapes off as it helps make for larger bulbs instead of the plant putting its energy into making these false flowers that produce small bubils.
Although this variety is a bit more difficult to grow than softneck varieties insofaras it is more sensitive to weed pressure and water inconsistency, it is such a joy to use in the kitchen that it's worth the extra effort. It is remarkably productive and very rewarding to grow. It is capable of growing to 3.5" in diameter with 5-8 large cloves per bulb. Music is probably the most productive harneck garlic capable of producing 13,000 pounds per acre!
Among the best for roasting!
