What are the pros? Pretty
What are the cons? too tall
This corn is really lovely in color. It did grow taller than I expected, probably closer to six feet. I had problems with it lodging, but my other corn variety did also so I can't say it's this variety in particular that is susceptible. I grew it next to Seneca stalker corn, and they tasseled at different times, so I am not expecting any crossing of genetics. The biggest issue I had is that not all of the kernels filled out. About half of what I planted only had half the kernels, which was disappointing. The Seneca Red did not have this problem. The only thing I can think of is that the pollinators did not find it, maybe because it is early. The Seneca red corn had bees all over it, gathering pollen, but it was a later variety. I'm going to try again this year, though, as it's a very pretty corn- my kids LOVED pulling the stalks open to see what shade of red they'd find.
