A yellow sweet corn selected for the last 60+ years to mature in Montana summers, Organic Fisher’s Earliest Corn is now grown by our friends in northern Vermont at High Mowing Organic Seeds. Her brilliant yellow ears average six inches, typically one per multi-colored stalk, 5-6 foot high.
Now, let’s talk flavor! If you’re looking for sticky sweet corn, as most America craves, you’re likely going to love Double Standard on your plate; if you’re looking for the earth and heaven of rich, savory corn flavor and luscious sweet, Fisher’s earliest will not disappoint you. All Fruition’s sweet corn varieties grow similarly sized 8″ ears, larger or smaller depending on fertility.
