Heirloom Organic Trucker's Favorite White Corn Seeds (10)
80 to 115 days — 'Trucker's Favorite White' is an early, old standard dent corn variety that produces nine inch ears and have between sixteen and eighteen rows of tender, relatively sweet white kernels, making it a favorite roasting corn or frying corn. The plants grow to about six to seven feet tall.
As with all field corn it is best picked in early milk stage (about 80 days) for eating fresh. A high yielding variety, it was introduced in 1899 by T. W. Wood & Sons. In their announcement that year, they stated:
"Makes Fine Shaped Roasting Ears—A Splendid Second Early Corn. This new white corn makes a most desirable green corn for second early planting, to come in immediately after 'Adams Early'. It makes a larger ear than 'Adams Early', more uniform in shape, and a most attractive and salable ear in the green state, when offered in our markets. It has good deep grains, and fills out well to the end, is of excellent flavor, and keeps green and tender for some time after reaching the roasting-ear state. When it has been grown, it is very highly appreciated as a roasting-ear corn, and will prove a most valuable variety for second early roasting-ears for the trucker and market gardener and for home use." The Ivory Colored Kernels make this a beautiful addition to any garden and are truly a remarkable and great tasting corn.
