Music

Boars Rock farm has been growing Music garlic since 2008, and it is a hardneck, Porcelain variety known for growing very large with 4 to 7 cloves per bulb.  The bulbs themselves are wrapped in layers of a thin, white, papery skin where the cloves are wrapped in a mauve, pink or brown-tinged skin, and are easy to peel.  Music garlic was originally brought to Canada from Italy during the 1980’s, and was named for Al Music, a tobacco farmer who introduced it to Ontario; they have a long shelf life and it is the most widely planted variety in Canada.  Music garlic grows best in areas with cooler summer months and thrives in climates with cold winters.

 

Raw Music garlic is very aromatic and offers a medium-hot, ‘true garlic’ flavour.  Use in any recipe that calls for raw, cooked, or roasted garlic, and  typically one clove can be used in most dishes.  Considered to be a staple in a chef’s kitchen, it is perfect in sauces, stir frys, marinades, rubs and dips.   Pure Music Garlic Products only uses our certified organic Music garlic and for making the best tasting black garlic.

 

 Seed garlic can be shipped across Canada, depending on the season and variety.  Quantities are limited; so order early for best availability, we usually sell out by Thanksgiving weekend in October.

Persian Star
(Duganski)

Boars Rock Farm started growing Persian Star garlic in 2020, we started off small, but with growing demands from our customers, we planted a lot more.  It is a hardnecked, Purple Stripe variety known for growing large, but with smaller cloves, usually 7-9 cloves per bulb.  Persian Star is a stunningly beautiful looking garlic and an amazing flavour that matches its looks and size.  The bulbs have a pretty purple outer wrapper which protects the violet-tinged cloves. The origin is from Kazakhstan, and grows best in cooler summer months and also thrives in climates with cold winters and will store up to 5 months.

 

When eaten raw, Persian Star has a burst of fiery garlic heat and mellows out with a pleasant aftertaste. It is an extremely pungent smell with the earthy and musky flavor that many garlic lovers prize.It is an excellent choice for cooking as it holds its own in tomato sauces, soups, stews, and slow cooker chili.

 

Seed garlic can be shipped across Canada, depending on the season and variety.  Quantities are limited; so order early for best availability, we usually sell out by Thanksgiving weekend in October.
