I can't believe no one's posted about this corn yet! Out here in Hawaii, you can grow #9 almost year-round. Its ability to grow in all seasons baffles me and I want to do work growing a more nutty rich corn, perhaps with some beautiful coloration, and breeding in #9's ability to grow in October, and in January.
