DESCRIPTION: New sweet corn from traditional plant breeder Jonathan Spero at Lupine Knoll Farm in Oregon. He has been working to bring a little more sweetness into open-pollinated sweet corn, and Tuxana is his work in progress. A customer told us that the Tuxana she got nice well-filled ears for the first time. Big white kernels are sweeter than most open-pollinated corns, with good eating quality. Productive, with 2 ears on each plant. Ears are 7-8" long and mostly 16-18 rows around. You may occasionally find a few other-than-white kernels. < / p>
