A 1987 introduction from Musser. Has about the same growth habits as Silver Queen but a slighly heavier ear. It is one of the Everlasting Heritage series and is an excellent white corn. It is the white version of Kandy corn. It is not quite as adaptable as Silver Queen and seed is much more difficult to find but it is just as good maybe better eating.
