Once promoted as “the best white sweet corn in the world,” this hardy mid-season variety bears one to two ears on stalks that reach 7-8"" long. Plants grow 6-8' tall and produce ears with large kernels that, when cooked, have a creamy consistency and range in sweetness by ear. Named for Mary Atkinson of London, Ohio, this variety is believed to have been stewarded by the Atkinson family since before 1850; it was donated to Seed Savers Exchange in the early 1980s by W.W. Williams. Organic.

First time growing this corn, very nice , reminds me of silver queen ,i have a feeling we will be saving seeds and going away from the hybrids.
So sweet and delicious you'll eat it raw
Grew very well. Absolutely delicious. Most of the time I ate it raw right off the cob. no need for anything else. Just shuck and eat.
