This is a mid season white corn, similar to Silver Queen but a few days earlier. It is supposed to have replaced Platinum Lady which I never got around to trying. It is a good corn, but I prefer Silver King as an alternate to Silver Queen. Supposedly it grows best above the 40th parallel, but it did ok here in Georgia. NOTE it is an se Not a supersweet (SH2)
