I was a bit worried about these ears. I had three that were earlier than the others. The others all either died or didn't germinate. But these precocious stalks of corn that germinated in the cold soil of spring grew well. The problem with having just a few is getting them to pollinate. Only a handful of stalks were giving off pollen when these ears needed it. I went out and hand pollinated on occasion. I wasn't perfect about doing it every day. Hand pollinating corn is easy. In the early morning go out and shake each stalk. You can see the pollen fall straight down. With wind it blows it one way or the other, but in the quiet of the morning it falls right on the ears.
You can see by the photo that it wasn't perfectly pollinated. But of the three ears this one was the worst off and this side of the corn was the worst too. The other side was beautiful and all filled out. And the taste? Well it was ambrosia. Really the variety is called Ambrosia. It is a very sweet corn, so if you don't like them sweet, you wouldn't like it. But both my hubbie and I both have a sweet tooth. It was warm inside so I grilled them along with the rest of the meal. BTW grilled green beans are heavenly too. Not quite up there with sweet corn but not far off.
If I can just harvest the other Ambrosia in the garden, I'd be a very happy summer gardener. I have Ambrosia melons growing. One so far has been killed by wilt. The other three seem fine. They are just starting to set melons. I'm praying the wilt stays off the others for long enough for ripe melons.
