- Very tight, durable heads
This Italian variety boasts a delicious, spicy flavor when raw and a rich, sweet, and caramelly one when roasted. Its bright-white bulbs have a hint of pink and brown on the clove skins, and its large cloves are easy to peel. This porcelain-type garlic takes its name from Al Music, who brought it to Canada in the 1980s from his Italian homeland. It prefers cold climates but can adapt to warmer climates if not exposed to early-summer drought or heat stress. Hardneck, 4-10 cloves per bulb.
Ratings & Reviews
Pretty nice garlic
Nice, large cloves, but only got 9 out of 2 bulbs. Planted on 10/8/19 and harvested on 7/3/20. Nice bulbs, eager to try it. Had better luck with the Early Purple Italian and Broadleaf Czech that I also got from Seed Savers last fall.
I'm on year 4 of this garlic from original seed purchased in 2017. It's been quite dependable and tastes wonderful. Cloves are huge, the bulbs vary in size. Highly recommended. I live in Cedar Falls, IA
