From Crookham which offers this description: "POLKA is a snergistic version of Trinity. We have added more sweetness and flavor with this bicolored hybrid. The ears are cylindrical with refined kernels, good husk protection, excellent vigor and single stalked. Put this exceptional hybrid on your gourmet sweet corn list. Great for home garden, roadside stand and local markets. "
