An excellent 2nd early (73 day) white. Vigorous plant with blocky 8 inch ears. Good flavor. Great husk protection. Does well here as an early harvest and fits well with main season varieties like Silver King.

This was a pleasure to grow and eat. The stalks were very sturdy, thick and all grew to around 7 feet for me. Most produced 2 ears per stalk, and about 10% produced 3 ears. The ears were well formed and filled out uniformly. I must say the corn was absolutely delicious, and incredibly sweet. This was one of the best tasting white corn varieties, I have ever eaten. I have been enjoying it raw, and roasted on the grill. I will definitely be growing this again.
