What are the pros? Resilient plant, pretty color

What are the cons? Caught a bug on a few ears


Oh, these are just gorgeous! I planted all 75 seeds in my mother's garden (5-6/hole) and don't have a very green thumb so I, unfortunately, really neglected them. However, they didn't seem to need me much. They bathed in full sun and had very little water due to the dry summer we've had. I never once watered them yet they grew 8-10 feet tall and each plant yielded 4-6 ears. I finally went out there this afternoon to pick them, and they are just the prettiest thing! The color is a light pink and purple. My nieces just delighted in pulling away at the husks and silk to reveal the pretty colors. We did notice a white powdery bug/fungus (??) on a few of the ears but nothing too damaging. I just broke off the end that it was on and kept the rest. What a gift from Mother Nature and Baker Creek! Thank you!!!
