What are the pros? Unique appearance
What are the cons? None to speak of
This is a fun variety. We have ended up with ears that vary in size from a couple of inches all the way to five or six inches long. Some are all yellow with a few blue spots, some are brown, and some are a mix of colors. Overall I'm pleased with both the unique shape and color, and they will look good strewn about the house this fall. I'm sure we'll pop some just to try--given the small size of the kernels, it will be mini-popcorn.
We planted in a tight block (6" spacing), and even though I was away when things tasselled (so unable to help), the corn pollinated nicely and ears are full. Always nervous about small corn crops, but this went off without a hitch. The plants tolerated the hot summer we've had very well. I interspersed green onions with the corn, and we've had no pest problems. The squirrels I'm normally doing battle with did not seem interested at all.
Overall this is a fun and easy to grow variety. I wish we could post photos with our reviews!
