A giant tropical variety from Mexico, this lineage has been selected for years among giant vegetable growers to produce very tall stalks, with the world record (arguably) at 34'. Original variety name not certain; "Tall White" is used among competitive growers. This variety is very edible as dent corn (field corn) and can be used for corn flour, polenta, grits, roasted or parched. Highly prized for making white corn tortillas and corn chips. Original seed source was in 2014 from Joel Young from a 17'8” stalk. Harvested on 9-28-2016 from stalks that were 9-11' tall; many of the ears were huge as well. Stalks received minimal care - average soil, water and no special fertilizing. Takes at least 130 days from sowing until kernels are dry enough on the cob for harvesting.
