(Zea mays) One of the most productive, hardy corns ever
developed, this variety was a prize winner at the
1893 World’s Fair. Developed by James L. Reid in
northern Illinois from a Gordon Hopkins cross his
father brought from Brown County, Ohio in 1846.
Vigorous 6-7' plants with 9-10" well-filled ears. Very
dependable and adaptive variety. 85-110 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. ± 1,900 seeds/lb
