A new yellow sweet corn
from Oregon farmer/breeder Jonathan Spero of Lupine Knoll Farm.
Top Hat was a favorite in our trial this year, with well-filled, plump ears and a rich, sweet flavor. Away from the corn belt, he is growing non-GMO, non-hybrid corns for organic gardeners and farmers. Top Hat is a de-hybridization of the sweet hybrid Tuxedo. We applaud this public-spirited traditional breeding effort. OSSI_pledged variety. The breeder has voluntarily passed up patenting this variety and given it to the public domain.
Its well-wrapped husk also seemed to resist corn earworms better than most other corns. We think you will love it.
