Very hard corn to beat for freezing or canning. I usually put up 50 or so whole ears and 3 gallons of kernels and by Febuary its gone. Great for fresh eating but like other su corns the sweetness fades fast.

This is one of the best older sweet corn's there is, in my opinion. The ears are always full and even. It freezes and cans great but is best taken right off the stalk, shucked and dropped in boiling water!
