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.

Redwing Blackbirds had a feast

EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Old fashioned flavour

What are the cons? None

Review:

Follow up on previous report: The corn plants grew beautifully. Some of them were more than 6 feet tall. The cobs were filling out well. The Redwing Blackbirds had a party 2 weeks ago. They knew exactly when the corn was ready. They shredded the husks and made themselves a feast. One criminal was still in the garden when I arrived at 7 p.m. I managed to salvage 8 cobs and they cooked up well and tasted good. Not so supersweet like peaches and cream and the big yellow kernals are nice and chewy. Just what I was looking for. Some cobs looked like the picture. Some were unevenly fertilized. They are as advertised: about 8 inches long with 8 rows of large yellow kernals. I think most people would prefer a larger cob. Not growing corn again, any kind because if it's not the birds it's the rodents. Urban vegetable gardening has its challenges.

Review:

It's June 17th and the corn is 3 feet high with the tassels beginning to show. The plants are growing on a Hugel bed (not mount) and they were given composted organic hen manure pellets when planted. Now they have super thick stalks (thicker than the giant sunflower plants) with several 'tillers' growing out at the base that are super strong. I read that sometimes these will also produce tassels and cobs. Will see what happens and report back. They got another dose of chicken manure tonight. The plants have always been beautiful green and healthy from the very beginning after germination. They are interplanted with field peas as cover crop, and there's garlic alongside plus pole beans at the other side of the Hugel bed. And dill. Everyone looks very happy. I hope these taste like the corn of my childhood...... will report back. They have been given ideal conditions.

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.
