Gardeners' Notes:

Positive melody On Jul 12, 2007, melody from Benton, KY (Zone 7a) wrote:

A very good tasting sweet corn...not so terribly sugary that the 'corny' taste is overwhelmed, but a lovely delicate sweetness.

It's great for fresh eating and the kernels pop off the cob without any effort when one bites into it.

Pretty ears that fill out all the way to the tips.

An 86 day triple sweet (synergystic) yellow hybrid. Ears are 7.5 inches with 16- 18 rows.
