Nice !!
Reviewed By: Dan (Chelmsford, MA)
Nice tight small kernals, sweet flavor and good germination. The texture threw me a bit, it's a tad chewier than I'm used to with sweet corn but it's a minor complaint. I'd grow it again.

The Best By Far
Reviewed By: Derrick (Granite Falls, NC)
I guess taste is according to the person. I have tried both Double Delicious and Gotta Have It, and it wasn't even close. Double Delicious did FAR better in production, tasted 5 times better, and costs far less. So I believe it is the better choice. After all the hype surrounding Gotta Have It, I found it disappointing, and DD is still the best variety I have ever had. And the whole family agrees.

good stuff
Reviewed By: Kristi C (Strathcona, MN)
I bought some to try out a few years ago becuase I wasn't having very good luck with corn in my sandy soil. This corn gave me the yeild of a life time, we had so much xtra that I froze some, and found it was almost better frozen. It is sweet, and tender, with small kernels that just melt in your mouth. I now plant only this corn...nothing else compares.

Family loves it!
Reviewed By: Keith M. (Booneville, Kentucky)
My family loves to eat sweet corn. This variety is the best we have had. Love the Kandy Corn, but in our opinion, this is sweeter. Last year planted two rows in the garden. This year I have planted four rows. Will buy more for next year.

Good value but....not as tasty as
Reviewed By: Dean (Monkton, MD)
"Planted Gotta Have It, in my first planting followed by later plantings of Double Delicious. Got a better stand and yield with Double Delicious but not near the taste. I'm sure we will enjoy it over the coming weeks but next year I'm planting more ""Gotta Have It"". I think I might try one of the early short season varieties as well, just to get some sweet corn a little earlier."
