What are the pros? Absolutely beautiful
What are the cons? Some ears didn't mature
This was my first time trying to grow corn. I grew a 6x6 square with about 8" spacing between plants, and most stalks grew well. About a quarter of the plants never got very large, but 100% of the seeds I planted germinated. Most stalks had only one ear that fully developed, but a few had two. No problems with worms on any of the ears that matured.Opening up the ripened ears was like Christmas! You never know what colors you'll have inside. I had ears with beautiful pearly pastel kernels, rich, dark jewel tones, some mostly blues, some mostly pink. Many of the pinkish ears also had magenta-tinged husks. My 7-year-old son loved guessing which colors would be inside! I got about 1 - 1.5 quarts of kernels after shelling, which I will pop and feed to our chickens. If you're considering purchasing these seeds, do it!
