What are the pros? Productive, easy to grow.
What are the cons? Too starchy for some people
I've been growing corn off and on for 25 years -- and have usually not been satisfied with the results. But, this year, growing this corn, I'm a happy man. For the first time, I planted the corn Indian style in hills rather than rows, planted pole beans to climb up the cornstalks, and Blue Hubbard squash to weave in and out of the hills. It worked -- and kept the weeds down too.
I got about 80 percent germination and every cornstalk produced at least one big ear, and occasionally two. Picked young it was good eating roasted or boiled and buttered, "cornier' and with more body than that sickly sweet stuff. Older, it became very starchy and chewy. I like to add it to soups and sauces to get a little crunch. Dried, I anticipate it will make good corn meal.
I'll plant this variety again.
