'Six Shooter' Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Sweet Corn

85 days — 'Six Shooter' is an old heirloom sweet corn variety that as its name implies, can produce up to six full-sized ears on one stalk under the right growing conditions. Here on the farm in the Northern Willamette Valley, the stalks reach about eight feet tall to the tip of the tassel and produce three to four large ears each.

Its ears have 12 to 14 rows of white, sweet and delicious kernels. Along with multiple ears per stock, like many old corn varieties, 'Six Shooter' will also produce tillers (side shoots). Unlike "suckers," tillers do not sap energy from the main stalk and should be left. As an added bonus, these side shoots yield up to two, albeit smaller ears, making this a very productive variety.

Our original seed sample was sent to us by David Pendergrass in 2003. His family had been growing it since the early 1970s from seed purchased from the old R. H. Shumway Seed Company. It was commercially introduced by them in about 1968. Approximately 65 seeds per 0.5 ounce.

Wow. It's August 4 and the stalks are about nine feet tall. They were planted on May 20. Most have three ears on them, a few only have two ears but they all look good. I hope I can get to them before the deer do. The first ones should be ready later this week.
