Review:

Since this is my first year planting a 3 sisters garden, I am experimenting with the best way to plant them. I planted some seeds in the mounds, but I believe the chipmunk and birds got to them,as the mounds looked disturbed. . As a result, I got peat pot containers and filled it half with vegetable soil and the other half with a seed starting soil. I then took the other half of the seeds in put them in a moist dish witha a paper towel and after noticing after almost all of them sprouted, I put them in containers. I am hoping to plant them and save them at the end of the season. I am just hoping the ground hog and other animals don't get to them before them. So far, so good. I will try to keep you updated.

Review:

Outside of the 4 legged & winged creatures attracted to this corn, I've found it very easy to grow.

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Highly susceptible to disease

Review:

Very attractive ears. This is a northeastern variety and not particularly suited to North Carolina (or I'd guess much of the SE). Plants were mostly weak and small. Typical of northern varieties, this was very early to maturity at NC latitudes, caught us by surprise. Plants rarely over 6', often 4-5', cobs very slender, relatively wimpy tassels and poor pollination. All our plants were completely covered in Gray Leaf Spot by the end of the season but because they matured so early I don't think yield was impacted. Highly susceptible to fusarium ear rot, one of the worst varieties we grew in that respect. This variety is not naturally striped; kernels with starburst patterns are indicative of fusarium. Please don't eat anything from cobs with striped kernels. I don't recommend this variety for humid climates in the southeast, but based on the cobs I did harvest, I'd grow the heck out of it if I lived north of the Mason-Dixon or in a dry climate.

Review:

It can withstand large amounts of rain or mild droughts. Deer will pass up other corns to eat this first so make sure your fence is in order. Amazing appearance, Some folks find it stunning. A lot of history in these seeds. I am Lenape so I am very glad that it did not go extinct!
