What are the pros? good germination

What are the cons? tasteless

Review:

I'm not sure what happened, but my stalks were nice and tall, grew two ears on every stalk, and ears were nice and full when mature. However, the looks were deceiving. My corn had basically no taste at all, except maybe a very slight hint of sweetness on some of them. I put a good nitrogen rich fertilizer in the ground a few days before seeding, side-dressed a couple of different times with blood meal and a little urea. The same stuff I use on all my corn and none of it has ever tasted off before. Our weather was neither too dry or too wet, I'm just very confused as to what happened this time. I don't know, maybe you'll have better luck than I did.

What are the pros? the taste

What are the cons? bugs also like the taste

Review:

Corn grew well in poor soil. The corn is very tasty. The only problem I had was it also attracted a lot of bugs. I do not like to use pesticides, so I will have to find something organic to get rid of the pests.

delicious sweet corn

What are the pros? easy to grow, delicious

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was my first year growing corn and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was. This corn grew tall and produced 2 and sometimes 3 ears per stalk! The corn is delicious – sweet but not overly so like so much of the Indiana sweet corn available today. I’m planning on growing this variety again next year - as is my neighbor who has never been able to grow corn because the 'coons get into it. We had no trouble with varmints or pests of any sort.

What are the pros? Grew to 6 ft

What are the cons? NO FRUIT unedible

Review:

Probably something I did or my climate. I am in zone 9a, raised from seed in February. Got big beautiful and then brown and dead looking . So I had to pick them. Nothing edible inside cobs, ingrown. Maybe too hot here or I did something wrong. I am a new gardener. in Las Vegas where it easily gets to 110-120 all summer.

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 .
