An se hybrid bi-color. Ears 8,5 inches with 14 - 18 rows, (72 day) A 2000 introduction. It did well, considering we went 50 days on 1/2 inch of rain during its growing season. It is as early as advertised, about a week later than Silver Knight. Taste and texture are good for an early cultivar, but no match for main season cultivars.
