Early Red Naragansett
We think this the best red variety of sugar corn grown. It is remarkably early following the Minnesota the kernels are much shriveled and exceedingly sweet and tender. A good early market variety. Many think the flavor of the red sugar corn is superior to the white.
The three desirable qualities combined in this variety are earliness sweetness and duration. It follows the Early Minnesota remains in a fresh state and suitable for boiling nearly as long as the Evergreen and is by far the sweetest variety we have ever grown. After once tasting of this it will be difficult to induce a person to use any other. Ears large thick ten to twelve rows to the ear kernels long much shriveled and indented when dry.
Early Minnesota Sweet or Sugar
This is among the earliest of the sugar varieties and is much esteemed not only because it matures so early but for its excellent qualities as well. Ears rather small long and pointed.
Early Boynton Sweet or Sugar
We firmly believe this is the earliest variety of sweet corn in existence. On our own seed farms this season it produced roasting ears earlier than the Early Six Weeks variety. It is fit for table at least ten days before the Early Minnesota. The ears are small rather pointed and when mature the kernels are much shriveled. It is of course intended only for first early and a weeks time makes a great deal of difference in the profits of a market gardener.

The stalks and blades cure into good fodder and are also desirable to furnish green forage during the summer months. The seed is borne in a loose branching head ten to twelve inches in length at the top of the stalk. On good land Kaffir Corn will yield fifty bushels per acre. The seeds are esteemed for feeding to both stock and poultry. Pkt 10 cts. lb 25 cts.
