86 days to eating, 120 for dry crop An old commercial variety once very popular for Southern planting. Developed by North Carolina Farmer, James Monroe "Plough Boy" Jarvis (1857-1947) Dates back to the 1930s and perhaps earlier.
The stalks are relatively short compared to other field corn varieties, reaching 6 to 8 feet in height. Will produce two good ears per stalk, sometimes more under favorable growing conditions. Ears are 7 to 10 inches long, with
12 to 14 rows of medium sized, bright golden yellow kernels on a small white cob. Has a good tight shuck that aids against attacks from earworms. Shows good drought resistance.
