So close to perfection
Reviewed By: Chris (Howell, MI)
My father grew this corn for years and it is easily one of the best tasting I've ever eaten. Sweet without being syrupy, crisp texture, an outstanding gem in all flavor aspects. The plants are strong and tall and the yields are excellent, though its production life is relatively short. I started growing it again last year and had a serious problem with smut development and I remember my father having the same problem with this variety. While I haven't written of this variety, I will be trying new varieties to see if I can find one with comparable flavor, but better disease resistance.
