Among the best heirloom shoepeg corns. This type of white corn is named for the way its sweet, delicious, milky kernels form very deeply in the cob, resembling “shoe pegs.” There are no rows, just an irregular zigzag pattern, which also distinguishes it. The tall plants are big producers and hold ears on the plant better than most open-pollinated corn. The sweetness is not overly cloying like some sweet corn, and it doesn’t lose its texture with prolonged heat, making it exceptionally good for roasting/grilling, canning and slow-cooker recipes.
