What are the pros? The number of ears per stalk
What are the cons? Ear worms really like it
I have planted this three years in a row and have found corn ear worms to be an issue every year, but that's the only issue I have. The first year I was worried when the stalks started tasseling around 3-1/2 feet, but no need to worry just the way it grows each year, Each stalk grows 1-2 side stalks so each plant grows 2-4 ears of corn. The germination is outstanding and have only had a couple of runts mixed in each year. It does blow over in summer storms, but doesn't affect it too much. I have lost a stalk or two in storms, but for the most part they continue to grow and produce. My family and I like the taste of old-time corn that is sweet, but not overly so. This corn gives us the flavor, the way we like it even if a little chewy. The ears are medium sized and typically packed with kernels. I definitely get my money and time's worth each year, which hasn't been my experience with some other varieties. I will continue to grow this consistent producer.
