Silver Queen Corn is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from ?: I am not sure if it is just my garden or what, but when we have bought this it always seems to die, or get broken at the base. It doesn't happen if I plant from kernel. All the other plants do great and grow awesome except for the corn. If you can get it to live I am sure it will be a great plant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For best tasting corn have the water boiling when you pick the corn. As soon as you take the husks off the ears the sugar in corn starts to turn to starch & gets tough. If you ever buy corn in a store don`t buy it ready shucked, (husks off) because you will be disappointed in the quality.
