Silver King (aka Wisconsin No. 7)
100 days — This old dent-type roasting corn variety is not to be confused with the newer hybrid sweet corn variety that is being sold under the same name. 'Silver King' is an old variety dating back to the turn of the 20th Century.

The ears grow eight to nine inches long and have sixteen rows of white kernels. This variety is also used for grits, meal and feed.

The Wisconsin Experiment Station described the variety as, "a white dent corn with medium sized ears. The kernels are medium deep and have a rather rough dent. The stalks reach a good height and are very leafy hence the excellence of this variety for silage purposes."

This corn originated from Mr. H. J. Goddard of Fort Atkinson, Iowa. Professor Moore of the Wisconsin A. E. S. obtained a sample in 1904 and introduced it into Wisconsin.[1]  It was released by the L. L. Olds Seed Company in 1907.[2]  Each ounce is approximately 70 seeds.
