Jarvis Golden Prolific Corn

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.
