Gardeners' Notes:

Positive littlebitfarm On Feb 3, 2004, littlebitfarm from Stratford, OK wrote:

This is a nice OP corn. I planted it and gave it lots of abuse. Drought, ear worms, weeds galore. This corn still produced a crop. Very sweet in the milk stage. However, the only draw back to this corn is small ears. The ears are perhaps 6 inches long. However, the plants produce two or three, and the corn is nice enough tasting to make it worth it. A lot of this corn never made it to the house, I just ate it right in the garden. Tight husks keep ear worms at bay. VERY GOOD CORN!
