Top Hat Sweet Corn
3.4 24.95 $3.40 - $24.95
A delicious main-crop sweet corn that is getting a lot of attention because of its plump golden ears and a rich flavor. Top Hat's well-wrapped husk resists corn earworms better than most other corns. Another great sweet corn from Oregon farmer/breeder Jonathan Spero. Away from the corn belt, he bred non-GMO, non-hybrid corns for organic gardeners and farmers. OSSI-pledged open-source variety. In short supply due to Mr Spero's untimely death last spring. We are pleased to make his legacy available in the form of this outstanding corn variety. 82 days. 60 seeds.
