    Nope. Every time I try sweet corn I get visited by deer - I don't want to tempt fate.

    No, but I've just had a look. I see it's described by DT Brown's as a late season. Me, I like earlies to be sure. Would late season suit you? The pictures on the DT Brown's website look good, but then I guess they all do.

    Edited to say: I take all that back. It could be quite early. Found this
    "Highlighting results with extra tender types, he says: "Lark is proving to be a good performer but its cobs tend to be on the smaller side, so it's not the best for commercial growers. However, it performs well in the kind of weather we have experienced this year, making it ideal for the amateur market - not just home growers but farm shops and small holdings."

    Wagtail is a new tender variety from Tozer and it matured just three days behind Lark. It has a good average weight of 278g and a nice-sized grain length of 18.1cm. The second new tender introduction from Tozer, Lapwing, offers a similar fill ratio but with a longer, heavier crop."

    Could be a goodie.
