90 days. Introduced in 1890 by S.D. Woodruff & Sons. Sweet, delicious and milky; tender white kernels on 8” ears. The ears have no rows, as this is a shoepeg type, and kernels are packed in a zigzag pattern. One of the best heirloom sweet corns.

What are the pros? Coons don't like white corn !

What are the cons? Slow to germinate cool ground

Review:

This is a very good sweet corn to plant if you have trouble with raccoons in your garden . It's a very tall corn 8 to 9 ft. And the ears are high on the stalk . With a tall heavy stalk plus the ear up high the coons have trouble getting to it . We had planted about half acre of white and yellow se corn . About the time it was ready the coons got in to it and took the whole patch . It looked like a heard of hogs got it . Stalks weren't very tall they bent th over and got it all. I was telling a older farmer about it and he said plant country gentleman white they won't bother it . I planted it and he was right . They got a few ears but didn't like it . They would bite in to the ear and leave it . We had a excellent harvest of very good sweet corn. Don't plant it in cool ground and watch how close u plant it in the row . Plant it 8 to 10 inches apart . We used to have a cannery near here and they used to plant it for there late corn . It's a good corn for canning or fresh eating corn .

What are the pros? easy to grow, delicious

What are the cons? not all ears developed

Review:

I can never ever go back to grocery store corn ever again. This was beyond phenomenal. My son got corn every day for lunch for a week or 2 and was delighted. This was the first corn i've ever eaten that is GMO free, and oh my goodness I could taste the difference. Not all of my ears developed but I didn't do anything overmuch to "help" either. They were planted in a combo of top soil and mushroom compost which probably helped, but our summer here has been utterly bizzare. On and off hot, and cold so that probably had a great deal to do with it. The 20 or so ears that we did get were phenomenal.

What are the pros? Plants grew quickly

What are the cons? Didn't produce edible corn

Review:

Zone 5 - I have never tried to grow corn before. I think that was part of the problem. I planted only 5 seeds. All 5 started out great, but only 2 grew tall. I had a few ears of corn on both of the tall plants, but none were edible. It is like the kernels never grew.

What are the pros? Starts Easy, Grows Tall

What are the cons? Ears High On Stalk

Review:

Glad to have grown this variety of corn in a small Puget Sound region garden this year. Started 80 seeds indoors, and then planted outside last week of may and first week of June, but only 50 made it past 2 feet on. Slow to gain height, but probably due to geographical area. After languishing through most of June, plants started gaining quickly throughout July, especially during the last week. August saw most growth with plants topping out at 7-10 feet. Silking commenced on first week of August. Hand pollinated to optimize yield. Most stalks yielding two ears, although some stalks had 5 ears to start. All ears are full and lots over 8". The end result is worth it for me, but the some in household expected the current super sweet corn taste. Lots of husk. Kernels tightly packed with lots of crunch, but with an old school flavor which is what I enjoy the best. Never seen anything like this in a store. Would recommend!

What are the pros? huge corn stalks, huge ears

What are the cons? very hairy, slow maturity

Review:

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!
