"A cold resistant, early maturing, all yellow variety that will germinate and grow in cold soils. The 3 to 4 foot stalks produce 6 to 7 inch slightly tapered ears that are moderately filled with 12 rows of kernels. Developed at the University of Alaska Research Station. Earliest variety in Alaska. Very early".
