A very reliable producer here in west KY. We have a nice crop in the area despite the terrible early spring drought that we suffered in 2007.

Not as 'candy sweet' as some of the other cultivars, but personally, I prefer the taste.

The ears seem to fill out well and evenly all the way to the tips.

Great as a fresh eating corn, or frozen for winter.

Can be used to make grits, or if you're in a more formal mood, hominy.

This a 1967 introduction, in the EH series. Some consider it an early bi-color version of Kandy Korn. It is medium early with 7 inch ears. Eating qualities are good although not quite as tasty (to me ) as later maturing cultivars like Pearl 'N Gold or especially Sugar Dots. Reliable producer.
