Pencil Cob Corn Seeds (73-100 days)


Pencil Cob is was named this way because the cob can be as thin as a pencil.

This produces long and deep kernels.

Considered a shoepeg dent corn that was typically used as a roasting corn, but very flavorful in its milk stage for frying or creaming. Incredibly popular for southern style grits. However, one of the folks here at Sustainable Seed swears it makes the sweestest corn bread and it's all she will use.

Pencil Cob grows 6'-12' tall and produces 2-3 ears per stalk.

What makes Pencil Cob still so popular?

It has a very hearty corn flavor that is missing in most modern corns.

Considered one of the absolute best roasting corn types.

Pencil Cobb

This is the corn my mom planted when I was young. It has been hard to find around here, but early drought, I had some skips, but I replanted. Been raining, and I have 4' foot sturdy stalks, will side dress with organic fish fertilizer, expect good yield. Will cut it off and freeze for frying.

Good corn
