Any idea what went wrong? This is Golden Bantam non - hybrid variety. The plants came up strong though I fought corn borers all season. They suddenly browned up at the end of July, so I picked what ears where this is the result. One ear actually started sprouting! I tried cooking some and it tasted very starch and mealy. GB is supposed to be a sweet variety. Everything I'm reading says that the minimum size for a patch of corn is 10 x 10. This was only about 5 plants, so I think they did not pollinate. I'm hoping that next year, I'll have a bit more success against the bugs and drought and also plant a larger patch.
