What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? Needs a longer season for ears
I had purchased seeds from Baker Creek 3 years ago before I realized that I would need a tiller for my rock-filled clay wonderland, so they sat in my basement until this year. We had a very long wait until it got warm enough to plant outside, so I did not get any ears. I did, however, get 12' tall plants that were incredibly healthy-looking, despite not having great dirt, an early drought, and cutworms killing off a bunch of my plants. I did notice a ton of aphids around the tassels at the top, so I will keep an eye out for them next year. The pollen coming off of these guys is no joke, so expect a ton of cross-pollination unless you're very careful if you plan on planting more than one variety.
