1901-LG  Zea maize

(Sweet) 65-75 days.

This must be a good one—Fred Ashworth named it "rat selected" because this variety was the one most visited by rats in the storage bins! Early 6" cobs on 4'-5' stalks; yellow kernels and old-fashioned corn taste. Keep an eye on the milk stage for optimal harvest time and sweetness.

Fred Ashworth lui a confié le beau nom «rat selected» (choix du rat) parce qu’elle fût la variété dans les silos a grains les plus souvent visitée par les rats!  Elle a des rafles hâtives de 6 pouces sur des tiges d’entre 4 et 5 pouces, des grains jaunes et un goût «à l’ancienne». Afin de récolter au moment propice pour une sucrosité optimale il faut la surveiller pour le stade de grain laiteux.
