description for "Corn: Zea mays 'Bon Jour F1'"

'Bon Jour' is productive and early bearing, yielding luscious ears of rich tasting creamy-white and golden-yellow kernels a week before most other varieties. This vigorous new hybrid has 6 to 7 foot stalks with top quality, well filled ears, each with 14 to 16 rows of juicy kernels. Best of all, ears stay sweet and tender for an extended harvest when you don't want to pick them all at once. Once picked, 'Bon Jour' holds its sweet flavor for a week. Well filled out ears of corn are ready to eat when the silks are very dark brown but not dried out. Test by choosing a plump ear and peeling back the husk very slightly. The kernels should be tender and milky when slit with a fingernail. 'Bon Jour' is a SE corn, so the tender crisp kernels will hold their sweetness after harvest. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
