Negative Farmerdill On Jun 6, 2009, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

5 foot stalks bear 8 x 2 inch ears. Developed by Crookham. It has been a poor performer for me. It is early but not sufficiently so to be an advantage. Ears are very small and shoots about 6 inches above the ground making it quite attractive to critters. It is not competitive with Silver Princess or Augusta grown in the same field.
