Lemon Cuke Cucumber: "the best all around for yield, disease resistance, ease of growing and taste this year. I always peel, but you wouldn't have to if you didn't want to. They never went bitter. Even in 106 degree weather! They still produced in 106 degree temps, but sparsely. They picked their tremendous production back up when the temps came back down to the 90's. definitely a favorite to grow."
Virginia White Gourdseed Corn. 125 days. [1700s, originating from Native American genuine gourdseed corn. Reselected by Dr. Ralph Singleton and reintroduced 1986 by SESE. Recent seedstock thanks to the Accokeek Foundation.] Large, long, white kernels on fat, short, 3” x 8” ears. Kernels shell easily. White cobs, 1-2 ears/stalk, 10-12’ plants. Excellent resistance to Southern Leaf Blight, well-adapted to the Mid-Atlantic from Virginia southward.
Stowell's Evergreen Sweet Corn (95 days). The most common mistake people make is planting corn seed too early and the seed rots in the cold soil. I plant plenty of fava beans in the spring and chop them into the ground a few weeks before I plant corn seed. Fava's put amazing amounts of nitrogen into the ground naturally and without harsh chemicals.
