What are the pros? Really delicious
What are the cons? Smallish cobs, low germination
Slow to get going then with regular feeding and a LOT of watering [our snowy 2018 Spring was followed by an unusually hot Summer by Irish standards - 32C/89F ] they took off and hit the 12ft mark with about 3-4 (& 5-7) cobs per plant, not including a few dinky ones from several side shoots. Low germination rate, maybe 10 out of a hundred seeds? But a lot of seeds in the pack. Sharing spare seed showed how the same stock developed in similar soil with different treatment nearby. It took a while for my outdoor plants to catch up with greenhouse-started seedlings, but catch up they did. Less watered plants topped out at around 5ft and 1-2 good cobs on a few plants. Smallish skinny cobs for all the work (looked huge on the plant!) but really delicious and richly flavoured corn, kernels tender like fruit, not waxy, sweet but not sugary, with a touch of chocolate somewhere in the background, stains your fingers & mouth purple! Feed was mostly Autumn-dug horse manure & organic liquid seaweed.
