Central Phoenix -- Early and Often is the variety I have had the most luck with here. I have only a small garden and it is enclosed with netting (to keep out birds which are a major pest) so can't grow anything very tall. Early and Often is sort of short (6 feet) and produces fast (64 days). Since corn doesn't do well in summer heat here, it needs to produce before the end of June, so I plant in March, then again in August after the rains start (or so we hope). The ears are medium-size and good tasting.

This is an interesting, fast growing variety of corn. I have wanted to grow this variety of corn for a while now but never had yard room. I experimented with this plant and noticed that it will also grow in a large pot. I suggest this variety to any gardener whom loves fresh corn but does not have much space.
