Jarvis Golden Prolific

86 to 120 days — The plants are relatively short compared to other field corn varieties, averaging about six to eight feet in height producing two good, large ears per stalk; sometimes more under favorable growing conditions. The ears reach seven to ten inches long, with twelve to fourteen rows of medium sized, bright golden yellow kernels on a small white cob. Has a good tight shuck that aids against attacks from earworms. Shows good drought resistance.

It is good as a roasting corn when picked in the early milk stage (about 86 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.

An old commercial variety once very popular for Southern planting. Developed by North Carolina Farmer, James Monroe "Plough Boy" Jarvis (b. 1857-d. 1947). Dates back to the 1930s and perhaps earlier. Our 'Jarvis Golden Prolific' corn seed is grown for us in Middle Tennessee by David Pendergrass. Each ounce is approximately 70 to 75 seeds.
