Positive Farmerdill On Sep 6, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

A 67 day white se hybrid from Syngenta (Rogers). Ears are 7.5 inches with 14 - 16 rows. It is quite early, with 71/2 inch slim ears. Very attractive if small ear. Taste does not measure up to its longer season siblings, Silver Princess, Silver King, and Silver Queen. Lot better than Polar V tho.
