(Zea mays) Introduced in 1890 by S. D. Woodruff & Sons of
Orange, Connecticut. Standard late-season white
corn with narrow “shoe peg” (non-rowed) kernels.
Tapered 7-8" ears grow on 7-8' stalks that often
produce two ears. Home garden variety for fresh use
or canning. 88-92 days.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost
has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant
in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin
seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and
does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of
water. ± 2,800 seeds/lb
