The SE (sugary enhanced) have always done well for me, also. This year I had Sugar Buns, Kandy King, Bodacious, and Sugar Pearl. There were only a small number of plants for some of these and I've made the claim that they are all bi-colors
because they get mixed up . .
. That isn't completely true but it becomes fairly obvious that there's quite a bit of cross-pollination in my corn patches.
I believe that Peaches and Cream is also a sugary enhanced type but I haven't grown it.
I am very happy with Sugar Buns and it is quite a small plant but there has been one in my garden that I had for a number of years that was almost embarrassingly small: Fleet.
Jeff, it could be that some of these little guys would be most suitable for your approach to growing corn. Look at the catalog descriptions and one of those that says it is about 5 1/2 feet tall may be the one for you. I know that Fleet wasn't usually even that tall
. I'm sure that some of the neighbors thought there was something wrong with it. But, it was very early and quite tasty.
