What are the pros? Handles dry conditions
What are the cons? Weather knocked out half crop
I planted these in my urban garden along my south facing wall, 6-8 hrs sun, not expecting more than a novelty planting. About 2 mos into the growing season they were doing well, even if I forgot to water them when it didn't rain. However, once the stalks got about 6 feet high, they had a tendency to bend in half. I had planted some in rows and some in a close cluster; planting arrangement did not seem to change this. A late season storm took out the biggest plants. Two of the 6 planted in a row made it, only one in the cluster planting made it to tassel. Those that did make it put out beautiful ears of dark blue corn. I had only one cob that had sporadic kernels. Made tortillas from the dried corn and they were quite good. Will do more research to possible solutions to weak corn stalks and try again this year!
