Bet I could guess the variety, if I hadn't given away the last of my packet. I also just picked a few "ears". Ha! No rain, poor pollination and I am not impressed; the 2nd batch doesn't look too promising either. However, my 8 Blue Hopi plants have huge, wonderfully full ears (2 per) developing; from 10 seeds to 100+ saved for another day...
funny thing was, I wasnt expecting to get any ears, but I've got about 12 ears off of 6 plants----I jsut stuck some old seeds in the ground out of curiosity and for use as halloween decoration. Heh, I'm blessed this year.
I see that is a bicolor corn. Is it 'Peaches and Cream'? How is it for taste? looks good on the pick. Mine also is growing organic. Just the first few were picked to test. Nice to have it fresh from the garden like that.
