This variety is a yearly staple for my garden and I have grown these in three different states, Florida, NC, and Ohio. It produces best with NC weather. The plant will produce 3 ears and you can get two full sized ears if you give it full sun and have longer growing season like in NC. The ear is longer than typical and the kernels are porcelain white. As with any corn, if you live in the South and have root knot nematodes in the soil, it will not grow well at all. In Florida I grew it in containers and grow bags.
