Farm Fresh LIsa
What are the pros? huge corn stalks, huge ears
What are the cons? very hairy, slow maturity
This was our first year growing this variety. The first thing we noticed is that this variety of corn makes GINORMOUS corn stalks! My husband is 6'1" and it was 2 more foot higher than he is! This was actually very awesome and beneficial as we had planted watermelon, potatoes and tomatoes through out the patch, so they were well protected from the harsh summer sun.
The corn is slow to mature--most likely due to it's gigantic ears, but it's worth the wait. We noticed that it was ready when the little bugs started gathering on the end of each cob's hair. The sugars were ripe and ready!
Each stalk had a high yield and we had hardly any bad ears. My husband was fascinated with the zigzag rows after I assured him it was normal. LOL! He ate an ear raw (what he says is the true test) and declared it a winner!
We will definitely be planting this again next year!
