What are the pros? Easy to grow and it is robust
What are the cons? nothing yet.
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.
