Corn – Tuxana Sweet Corn

$3.48

Bright white sweet juicy kernels on 8” long ears with 14-18 rows. Pick quickly – doesn’t hold long in field. Most plants produce 2 ears. For two years in a row, Tuxana was a favourite in our on-farm trials standing its ground against some hybrid varietis. Tuxana was bred by Jonathan Spero of Lupine Knoll Farm in Oregon by selecting from a cross between an Anasazi landrace corn and Tuxedo, a sugary enhanced hybrid.
