'Music' garlic is a gift to cooks -- big cloves wrapped up in easy-to-peel, pink skin.

What is it about ‘Music’ garlic that makes it the most popular seed garlic with our customers?


First of all, it’s a hardneck garlic and all the hardnecks have more complex flavors than the softneck garlic found in grocery stores.

‘Music’ is one of the hardnecks known as a porcelain garlic, and it is beautiful.
