    You're lucky scroggin to have sampled some already.

    Will let you know as soon as mine are ready - plenty of cobs on each plan though.

    I don't think mine will be too long now, they've all flowered and there are a number of cobs on each plant. They are a mini pop variety so not sure when to pick then, I'm sure you don't need to wait for the tassels to turn brown on these.

    Oops...I can start picking them...the distructions say pick the little cobs at about 10cm, when the tassels are just showing and before the grains start to swell.
