What are the pros? Strong, tall, good germination
What are the cons? Taste, texture
I really wanted to love this corn. My research pointed out this being an heirloom variety that could really stick it to the hybrids, but it didn't deliver (other than looks). It grew really tall, and was a really impressive corn patch. The problem was the flavor and texture. Its OK, but unless I let it get overripe, this is the worst tasting sweet corn I've ever planted. There was barely a hint of sweetness and the kernels were tough. It was also a really late maturing crop, but that was to be expected. I had very few problems with bugs and critters, but maybe that's because it isn't all that sweet. I really wanted to keep the entire garden full of heirloom vegetables, but I can't see this corn making the cut.
