Honey 'n Pearl vs Gotta Have It.
Reviewed By: Mike Wheeler (West Springfield, PA)
I planted both Honey 'n Pearl and Gotta Have It this year. The H&P came up a bit more spotty than the GTHI. Both varieties produced very sturdy stalks with two ears per stalk. H&P produced ears that were slightly larger in diameter but they seemed to be more prone to splitting open at the top and getting worms. I'd estimate that approximately 10% of the ears had split open and had a worm or a black spot at the top. The GTHI grew more quickly and consistently. Just about every seed that was planted grew. There were no ears that had any worms or black spots..Not even ONE! The flavor of both varieties was INCREDIBLE and was almost identical between the two. I'd say that the GTHI was a little bit more sweet and the H&P had a bit more of a characteristic "corny" flavor. Both were wonderful. My family and friends could not believe how good they were! Something interesting that I noticed was that for some reason, the silk on the GTHI was MUCH easier to remove. I really liked both varieties and wold recommend either of them, but due to the couple of things noted above, I'll be buying GTHI next year!

Honey 'n Pearl
Reviewed By: Brian (Edon, Ohio)
Grew very well for us. The kernels were quite a bit harder and not as sweet as the Incredible when boiled. We got two big ears off of each plant. All around it is a good variety.

Incredible
Reviewed By: JP (Evensvile, TN)
"This was my first year planting corn. I planted five varietes, three sweet, one dent, and Indian corn. By far this one has done the best. I am getting two great ears off of almost every plant and probably had a germination rate well into the 95% range. Great tasting corn and I have done ""very little"" with it. Very easy for the home novice gardner."

"Me and my brother planted about 18 rows, two hundred feet long and because the ground was soaked with water we thought that the yield would be low and that we wouldn't have much to sell. It came up fairly well and the rain was perfect after that for about a month...then it got hot and dry but it still kept doing good. We roto-tilled between rows to keep weeds down and probably watered it five times when there was no rain. This was the forth time this field was corn because they had sprayed for beans, but the corn stalks were strong standing and each produced two solid pickings of full, delicious, huge ears. We sold the first ""batch"" today and it sold fast. The word spread and people came and bought alot because their neihbors told them it was so good. This is a great choice of sweet corn for freezing, or sale. This is the third year we have planted it and it has never let us down."

Beats 'Gotta Have It' IMHO
Reviewed By: Jen A. (Weston, Ohio)
Planted Honey 'n Pearl in '09 and Gotta Have It in '10. H'nP beats Gotta Have It hands down. Thick and well formed kernels to the very end of the cob. Awesome taste and held well in frig after picking.Froze very well and retained crisp texture and sweetness. Also seemed to be very disease resistant. No worms or smut, as with the GHI last year, but then, every growing season is different. Am ordering H'nP again this year. A proven winner.

We plant corn every year in our garden and last year we tried Honey 'n' Pearl and it did not have a single worm in the entire crop of corn - and talk about delicious! It's my all-time favorite and will be for years to come!

perfect
Reviewed By: Steave (Bonfield, Illinois)
We Bought 2 1/2 lbs. of Honey'n Pearl and 2 1/2 lbs of Bodacious and they were both fabulous but we found out there was to much to freeze so we sold some and had many returning* customers*. Any way, it produced large stalkes and ears with full delicious kernels.This is one of the best sweet corn I have ever had!

The Best
Reviewed By: Connie (Ainsworth, Ne)
This is the best sweet corn we have ever raised. Very tall sturdy stalks and every one had two big fully formed ears. We gave some away to friends and family and they all begged for more. Will definately reorder next year. One more thing. This corn also survived an early hail storm. It was really stripped but it came back and produced wonderfully.
