Gardeners' Notes:

I also grew this for a couple of years after having grown Peaches and Cream. I did not like it as well as Peaches and Cream, because the silks were hard to brush off the cobs (corn rows jammed together) and were dark colored.

I'm now happily back to Peaches and Cream.

One of the oldest hybrid bi-colors. An su hybrid with 7 -8 inch ears with 12 -14 rows. I have grown this one as a substitute for the midseason version of Peaches and Cream. It has been a few years and I don't remember anything negative about this cultivar.
