What are the pros? Fun to watch grow to 10 feet
What are the cons? Zero production
When I read the description before ordering, I did make mental note of the words “but if it sets cobs”. The word “if” should be upper case, italicized and in bold font, perhaps colored red. Big -=IF=- for setting cobs. I had about a 60% germination rate - some of the seeds looked good and were plump, but half of them were very puny looking. Those puny ones had about a 20% germination rate and produced stunted plants. Of those that sprouted from the plump kernels, once they hit about 4 feet, they really took offgrowing very fast and reached 10 feet in an very short time. My wife and I enjoyed looking out every morning to see the extra few inches the tallest stalks added each day. A number of the stalks have lodged (fallen over) even though we have had almost no wind to speak of. Sadly, the tassels are mostly spent, with no ears for their pollen to fall on. I'm in the East Texas Gulf Plain just N of Houston, definitely not the Andes mountains. Fun experiment that failed.
