Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Farmerdill On Jan 10, 2013, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

"A golden gem you’ll want to flaunt; one of the few sugary enhanced (se) sweet corn hybrids selected for organic growing conditions. Its flashiness extends to flavor: Bling will entice you with its sweetness and luxurious mouth-feel. Long, slender ears are 7-8” in length and approximately 1.5” wide at the center. Sturdy plants grow 5.5-6’ tall with few tillers. Bling was developed by Dr. William Tracy at the University of Wisconsin in collaboration with High Mowing’s breeding program"
