This is among the oldest sweet corn that is still in production, predating 1949. It is still a favorite of many, producing tasty white kernels. The plants used to be pulled up when completely ripe, and hung upside-down in a cool pantry; the ears would last well into the winter, in a semi-fresh state. In 1873, the seeds sold for 25 cents per pint.

What are the pros? enormous ears

What are the cons? tough

Review:

This corn grew to over 12 ft. tall. I have grown corn for yr. (in town) and I have never seen ears so huge. Must pick as soon as ready, the earlier the better or the corn is very tough and not even good for freezing or making into creamed corn. Nothing saves it from growing to long except picking a bit early. My neighbors were all very impressed at the size of the stalks and ears. This was grown in a "new garden" so I was really impressed! Better to have a few kernals not fully formed than to allow all to be formed and get dry and tough.

What are the pros? Now that's some tall corn

What are the cons? none

Review:

I haven't seen corn grow this tall since I was a boy. Most of my stalks were over 12 ft. tall. No joke! With at least 2 ears per stalk. A few blew over during a storm so I had to stake them. No problem.

Review:

This was the second year I grew this variety. It does extremely well with little to no care. I planted them on March 15 both years and they finished producing about three weeks before it got too hot outside. My friends and neighbors were surprised to learn that they were an heirloom variety that produced so early. Especially when the news at the time was filled with stories about corn crop failures due to the heat and drought. Last year I grew them in three rows about 30 feet long. I planted them with squash and beans, letting the beans climb the stalks. I only planted about 50 seeds and just about every one came up. The ones in full sun grew the best, even though it got a little hot there towards the end. There were a few plants that became infested with aphids, but a little dish soap in a spray bottle cleared it right up. I was very happy with last year's harvest. This year was crazy though. I tilled up a 30X30 plot and cast planted about 300 seeds saved from the first year. It became a small jungle of corn about 6 feet tall and produced more corn than I knew what to do with. Everyone I knew was all "corned" out. I now have several pounds of seed that I intend to grow a food forest with next year. It may interest some of you to know that I had a several oddball plants that grew multiple stalks, sometimes as many as five. Each of the extra stalks grew out from the central stalk at the base, and produced an extra ear. I counted seven ears on a single plant, granted the extra ears were rather small. All in all, I am very happy with this variety, and will plant it as my primary corn crop for years to come.

Review:

I grew this corn for the first time the summer of 2011. I was disappointed, but not blaming the corn because I am trying to grow organically and am still learning pest control. I will say that germination and growth were very good, but the severe Texas hot weather and insects took a toll. I am reading good reviews about this corn and I intend to keep trying!
