Iochief is one of the older hybrids. It has been popular among farmers and gardeners for decades and for good reason. It's not the best sweet corn available but is a reliable and consistent producer.
Part of it value lies in its ability to produce and retain high quality corn under adverse conditions. It is drought resistant as well as being tolerable, not resistant, just tolerable of inundating rains, that doesn't mean it's gonna survive a deluge, but it does withstand extremes of weather for limited periods and still produces quality sweet corn.
With the droughts being experienced in some parts of the country in recent years it makes a good choice for those areas. Iochief takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
