Gardeners' Notes:

Positive ATHagan On Apr 18, 2005, ATHagan from Gainesville, FL wrote:

Did well for me here in N/C Florida on our sandy loam. Stalk heights ran from seven to ten feet. I foolishly did not record kernel row count or cob color at the time and now do not recall for sure what they were. Good sized yellow kernels, close to rectangular in shape. About 60/40 double eared to single eared stalks. Maturity was roughly 100 days. Made good corn meal. I'll be growing it again.
