" Early, beautiful and delicious! For quality and old fashioned true corn flavor, we’ve found Fisher’s to be the best open-pollinated sweet corn variety in our trials. Kernels are well-lined in 10-12 rows with excellent tip fill and husk cover. Ears average 6” long. Vigorous, multi-colored stalks of red and green reach 5-6’ with usually one ear per plant sitting 18” high on stalk. Selected over sixty years ago for short seasons and high altitudes by Ken Fisher of Fisher’s Seeds in Belgrade, MT and now grown here on our seed farm in Wolcott, VT." High Mowing Seed
