1938 T.W. Woods Seed Co. says about Truckers Favorite Heirloom Corn....
"There is no early garden corn so extensively grown in the South as Trucker's Favorite corn. It is much hardier than any sugar corn and can be planted weeks earlier, and is ready for the table or market in about 70 days. Although not a sugar corn, it makes the finest roasting ears."
