Will's 'Early June'
65 days — Will's 'Early June', as its name implies, is a very early maturing variety. The plants don't spend a lot of time growing, typically reaching between two-and-a-half and four feet tall, before they decide to start flowering and producing ears. The ears are four to seven inches long, averaging about six inches, all of them with eight rows of beautiful, tender, sweet, white kernels.
Introduced by Oscar H. Will Seed Company, Bismarck, North Dakota in 1900,
'Early June' was developed by Robert Holmes of Anoka, Minnesota.
In their 1905 seed catalog, they wrote, "May be planted very close, as it only grows about 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 feet high, producing small ears of the most delicious corn in about 45 days from planting.
Our seed originated from a sample of USDA GRIN accession number PI 219867. Each packet contains 0.5 ounce, which is approximately 80 seeds.
