84% of 100

98 Days. This is among the oldest sweet corn still in production, predating 1849. Its tasty white kernels remain a favorite of many. In past times, plants were pulled up when completely ripe and hung upside down in a cool pantry. This preserved ears in a semi-fresh state well into the winter. In 1873, these seeds sold for 25 cents per pint.
