"Pay Dirt is a synergistic version of Trinity. There is a ton of sweetness and flavor in this bicolored hybrid. The ears are cylindrical with refined kernals, good husk protection, excellent vigor, and single stalked. Home garden, roadside stand, fresh markets, and short haul shipping. 8.5 ear length, 1.7 ear diameter, 16 ear height, 14-16 number rows, 68 plant height. 70 days." Does not perform well under my conditions.
