Pencil Cob Corn is a Non-GMO, Heirloom corn. It is considered to be one of best roasting corns on the planet! With 12 foot plants and multiple ears per stock, it's hard to put this corn into a class. Will grow in zones 4 to 10. Takes about 80 days for roasting corn and about 100 days for dry corn to mature with an intense corn flavor. Will make the best corn--hands down! For this garden year, order a piece of Heirloom history today! Happy growing!!!
