Silver Queen-but I like any kind of sweet corn. Give me some butter, salt and pepper and I'm good to go. Love it on the cob but it's great fried too.

Whatever breed of corn someone cooks up for me. Especially when it comes with a rare steak, some fresh bread and lots of butter.

We plant a crop of Sugary Enhanced corn every year. It's the strain between the normal sweet corn and the super sweet corn. Much sweeter than the normal sweet corn and more tender than the super sweet. We love it. I have about 4 ears a night, every night when the crop comes in. :nod:

We have tried a few different varieties and they all pretty much taste about the same. But if we have to pick one or two our favorites are "Ambrosia" and "Delectable". Both are bi-color. "Delectable" can be found on http://www.johnnyseeds.com and the "Ambrosia" can be found on http://www.parkseeds.com.

Anyone try Hybrid Sugar Baby? Its a bicolor, 65 days.

I'm planting some this week, 1/2 lb. Should come off about Sept (1st frost date is Oct 10, so I should be fine)

Based on you all's recommendations, I did plant some peaches and cream and am looking forward to eating some of it in about a month.

The Kandy Corn I'm disappointed in and maybe it was because the seed was 2 years old as it didn't germinate very well. Also I didn't water for about ten days because the forecast kept calling for rain every day and we didn't get any. Never fails when I water the garden from the hose we get some rain.

Ah, but we're enjoying lettuce, spinach, squash, greenbeans, cucumbers, and I can't keep the neighbor out of the beets so I guess I'll never know how big they can get!!

Had two red tomatoes on the vine but lots of green ones coming on hopefully by July 4th we'll be enjoying them.

I would like to find a little hickory cane seed to plant I haven"t had any in years can anybody help me out?


I would like to find Peaches and Cream in the Birmingham market. Should it be pretty common? Say at the Farmers Market?

Thanks in advance!
