What are the pros? Lots of cobs on one plant.
What are the cons? ?
First time I have grown corn. I put a few seeds in then forgot about it for a while. I got 2 plants growing which I hand pollinated although the timing might not have been the best as one grew earlier and I let a few cobs go largely unpollinated. I didn't baby them much, not a whole lot of watering etc... and they survived an Australian summer.
One developed something like 9 cobs (3 on 3 separate stalks), the other one stalk of 3, although several of them where only partially pollinated. I also had some kind of bugs in the cobs but they didn't hurt the plants (or end up in the popcorn).
The cobs are small (the 'mini' in the name). Mine seemed to be slightly more purple than pink, although they turned yellowish when heated.
I got a few bowls of popcorn out of them. They popped and tasted great. Once popped they are white like normal (although they did seem slightly different colour compared to some store brought kernels I had). Stalks about chest height.
