What are the pros? Exquisite from seed to harvest
What are the cons? Notging to dislike
My first attempt at growing corn, and so delighted with my excellent choice.
From high altitude, clay ground, too much rain, strong gusts of wind, a hailstorm, then too dry, a 40?C heatwave, to birds and borers, these very special plants where incredible and withstood anything that nature could have thrown at them. Matured from sowing to first harvest in 75 days. Two words: Much respect!
Each plant is unique, the colours when they matured filled my heart with joy. From seed to harvest, it makes time stand still to appreciate their beauty.
The cobs are the last and equally intense surprise, in beauty as well as taste.
Cooked they tasted like I once remembered corn to be, rich and earthy in flavour. Some sweet and delicate, others more like old style white corn. They keep their wonderful colours after cooking, like pearls of different colours.
Drying as we speak, I cannot wait to grind them for corn bread.
Feeling very blessed, my forever corn, for sure!
