Big Daddy's Yellow Dent

80 to 120 days — The plants average about eight feet tall producing one to two ears per stalk. The ears are large with cobs that are generally white but can throw an occasional reddish tinted one. It is a good roasting corn, and when picked in the early milk stage (about 80 to 85 days), also good for frying or as some people call it, creaming.

If allowed to fully mature, it can be harvested at about 120 days, fully dried, and used to grind into cornmeal or for stock feed. The stalks make nice fall decorations and the dried ears are also popular for feeding squirrels.

This old variety was handed down in the Pendergrass family of Hickman County, Tennessee and introduced to the public in the late 1990s by David Pendergrass. He is also our grower and supplier of this stock so you can be sure that it is being properly grown and maintained. He tells us that for lack of a name, he named it in honor of his grandfather, who everyone in the family referred to as "Big Daddy," and who had maintained it for many years before passing the responsibility along to David.

Each ounce is approximately 70 to 75 seeds.
