75 days. Early season sweet corn that yields in cool climates. Dorinny was originally a Canadian cross between Golden Bantam and Pickaninny. Received a Market Gardeners’ Award of Merit in 1936. Reliable even where soils are cool. Yellow kernels on 6-7” cobs offer old-fashioned sweet corn flavor. Vigorous plants reach 4-5 feet in height, usually yield two ears per plant. Grown in northern Maine by our friend, activist-farmer Jim Gerritsen.

What are the pros? Early maturity

What are the cons? none

Review:

Other reviewers have compared this corn to much larger corn varieties that require more days to maturity. This is not a fair comparison at all. For people who live in zone 4, like I do, this kind of small, early-maturing corn is all that I can grow. I would certainly love to grow Country Gentleman here, but I do not have a long enough season and all I get is very large stalks that waste a lot of space. I am planting this corn for the third year in a row. The taste is fine. I have no idea what people are comparing it to that is supposed to taste so much better. Certainly, if you have a long growing season, there is no real reason to grow this variety, unless you want some early maturing corn to tide you over until your bigger corn is ready. But this is a great variety for cold places like Idaho with a short growing season.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Small ears

Review:

This is the first heirloom corn I tried to grow and I am very disappointed. The ears are very small and the corn has very little flavor. After trying it, the rest was fed to the livestock.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow

What are the cons? Poor Flavor

Review:

Stalks seems to be stunted at first then take off after a while of staying the same size. Cobs are hard to tell when ripe but if you wait till fully matured on Cob they taste like paste and bland. If you pull them early they are only 1/2 matured but taste better. I've planted these 3 years in a row thinking I was doing something wrong but not going to plant again this year. Moving on to something better.
