Pencil Cob
75 to 100 days — This old "shoe peg type" dent corn variety is a very flavorful roasting ear corn. It is quite good picked in its early milk stage (about 75 days) for frying or creaming.  Since most field corn varieties have low sugar content, try adding a little sugar when creaming. Since most field corn varieties have low sugar content, try adding a little sugar when creaming. It is also useful as bird and livestock feed.

The plants grow five to six feet tall produce two to three ears per stalk. As seen in the picture, it gets its name from the fact that the cobs are not much bigger in diameter than a pencil. Although most companies simply state that it is a white corn, the color of the kernels are actually a dingy white color with a yellowish hue and tips that pick up a reddish tinge from the cob's coloring. Stands dry weather well. Each ounce is approximately 110 seeds.
