Musik is one of the most popular hard-neck varieties, a “Garlic Lovers” garlic, prized for being incredibly flavorful, well-developed, complex and spicy, without any bitterness. Flavor ranges from spicy when raw to a hot and aromatic, true gourmet garlic flavor when cooked; one clove can add a lot of flavor to any recipe! A porcelain type, it is exceptionally cold-hardy, productive and robust; plants can reach 3-4’ tall with dark green leaves stabilized by long roots. White-skinned with a blush of pink, bulbs are 2” diameter or larger, with 4-5 easy-to-peel jumbo cloves. Musik is easy to grow and keeps well until April or May when stored properly, up to 9 months to a year.
Musik has a notably high content of allicin, a powerful antioxidant and cold & flu fighter.
Harvest when lower 4-5 leaves have dried. Dry and hang out of direct light in a warm area with good air circulation. After they have dried for 2-3 weeks, cut off the stem, 1″ from the bulb and trim roots.
