Music is a very popular hardneck garlic and is prized for its jumbo cloves, long storage potential, and strong field performance in cold climates. In good growing conditions, Music can produce big bulbs with fat, easy-to-peel cloves. Skins are very thick and tightly wrapped, with creamy-white appearance. Music is hot when eaten raw, and has a deep, sophisticated flavor when cooked with medium spiciness
Music garlic is named after Canadian grower Al Music, who reputedly brought this variety from Italy in the 1980. Similar to German Extra-Hardy, with large succulent cloves, Music became known as a very good cold-climate variety.

Music is a garlic planted in the fall, soon after the first frost and a few weeks before the first hard frost. The seed garlic bulbs should be taken apart into separate cloves not long before planting. Hardneck garlic requires vernalization (exposure to a period of cold temperatures) before or after planting. Plant cloves two inches deep, the pointed side up. Garlic does best with a loose soil with very good drainage and a pH of 7.0 optimum. Plant in an area with full sun exposure.
