Botanical Name: Zea mays (hybrid)
Days to Maturity: 65 days
Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual
Plant Dimensions: 6′ tall
Variety Information: 8″ ears with 12–16 rows of tightly-packed, white and yellow kernels. Some tolerance to Stewart’s wilt. Plants and husks have a reddish-green color.
Type: Sugary enhanced (se)
Attributes: Cool-Weather Tolerant, Disease Resistant
Harvesting: Corn is ready about 3 weeks after the silks appear. Harvest when the silks are brown, but not dried, and the husks are dark green; ears should be plump, and rounded rather than pointed at the tip. To test for ripeness, gently pull back the husk and pop a kernel; the liquid should be whitish; if it is still clear, ears are not quite ready.
