Great Old School Corn
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5

What are the pros? Starts Easy, Grows Tall

What are the cons? Ears High On Stalk


Glad to have grown this variety of corn in a small Puget Sound region garden this year. Started 80 seeds indoors, and then planted outside last week of may and first week of June, but only 50 made it past 2 feet on. Slow to gain height, but probably due to geographical area. After languishing through most of June, plants started gaining quickly throughout July, especially during the last week. August saw most growth with plants topping out at 7-10 feet. Silking commenced on first week of August. Hand pollinated to optimize yield. Most stalks yielding two ears, although some stalks had 5 ears to start. All ears are full and lots over 8". The end result is worth it for me, but the some in household expected the current super sweet corn taste. Lots of husk. Kernels tightly packed with lots of crunch, but with an old school flavor which is what I enjoy the best. Never seen anything like this in a store. Would recommend!
