Early season sweet corn that yields in cool climates. Dorinny was originally a Canadian cross between Golden Bantam and Pickaninny. Received a Market Gardeners’ Award of Merit in 1936. Reliable even where soils are cool. Yellow kernels on 6-7” cobs offer old-fashioned sweet corn flavor. Vigorous plants reach 4-5 feet in height, usually yield two ears per plant. Grown in northern Maine by our friend, activist-farmer Jim Gerritsen.

very disappointing corn
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? They did mature early.

What are the cons? nasty corn

Review:

The stalks were really short, like 3 or 4 feet. They did mature early, but it's not worth our garden space because the corn was very bland and squishy. And the ears were really small, most deformed. If we cooked the corn too little, it was obviously raw, but in a matter of a minute the corn got squishy, the constancy of play dough in your mouth. Not pleasant, to say in the least--the chickens got to eat all the rest. The only good thing about it was I decided to plant pumpkins in-between the rows of corn (we planted Moranga squash) and they did really great, so I was glad that the garden space wasn't totally wasted. :) Oh, and the cow will get to eat the corn stalks. :) We'll keep trying different varieties and see what works for us. But this is really disappointing corn.

Big ears for a small plant

What are the pros? A lot of corn from one plant.

What are the cons? Don't have any dislikes yet.

Review:

We got a late freeze, and even though I covered it, a lot of it was black the next day. Even after that, over half of it grew pretty good, and a lot of it has 3 ears, some 4. The plants and ears are different sizes, but that might be because I transplanted some of it when some died. There are some nice big ears, close to 10", and a couple around 3". Since it's short, it doesn't get much wind where I planted it. Some of it is just about ready now, and it's only been 2 months. For all it's been through, I think it's a pretty strong productive plant. I just won't try planting pole beans with it again. What other sweet corn gives you 4 full ears for one kernel? I look forward to planting it next year too.

Not impressed
Easy to Grow 2.5

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Spotty and uneven germination

Review:

Seeds germinated over a 2 week period. Definitely not good for decent ear pollination. SHORT stalks - some are less than 3 foot tall. Poor ear fill.

What are the pros? Easy to plant?

What are the cons? Never took off

Review:

Planted seeds mid-March here in So.Cal which should have suited this variety. Spring is usually cool nights and mornings and mostly mild (70's) days with some rain and some warm days. About half sprouted and after 2 months only a few are even a foot high. Soil was amended with manure and organic very fertilizer so that should have helped. Could be just the conditions. Who knows. I think I'll pull these out and plant a few more for summer and see what happens.

What are the pros? sweet and juicy, hardy

What are the cons? none

Review:

This variety produced 3 to 4 ears on 4 foot stalks. Very wet and cold spring here in Montana last year. (2015) It may have set them back a bit as I was worried they would not produce at all. Wow, was I wrong. Started peaking after about 70 days and found 7" to 9" ears which we took in immediately and roasted. Delicious! Froze the rest and just finished them (February). Sweet and kept well. Our garden location was on new virgin soil. Formerly a pasture for 60 years so might have had all nutrients it needed available.
