What are the pros? 2 big ears per plant
What are the cons? young plants curly deformed
I grew this in KY for two years I was very pleased, Big Plants big ears, two per stalk. Yes it's not real sweet but I'll take the trade in good production any day! But... after Moving back to my MI home my seed (or something) was growing young plants that just "curled" back down towards the ground? I'd try to un-furl the new leaves and the center of the plant just clogged up and turned down again. About 10 to 20 % of the plants did this. I also did not get those second ears...even though the plants grew 8-9' tall the second ear didn't mature. Don't know why the mutation problem. I was collecting my own seed for 4 years going. Always collected the best from the best! I even ordered some new seed last year (2015) thinking that would correct the problem, nope! Thought I had found my favorite open pollinated variety and now I'm looking for something new. By the way, I didn't find any bugs.
