(Mexican Sweet, Black Iroquois) USDA Certified Organic (white at edible stage) 76 days. [1864. Despite its name, it appears to have originated in upper NY, and was probably derived from Iroquois Black Puckers. The name may have been given by a seed company trying to give novelty to its seed offerings, a practice not uncommon in the late 1800's.] The kernels, white at milk stage, change to bluish-black in the late milk stage. Exceptional flavor. 5-1/2 ft. plants. 7- 1/2" x 1-1/2" ears, typically with 8 rows of kernels. Harvest several days before kernels show color to several days afterwards. Although adapted to New England, it does well as a second early variety in the South.
