I chopped down my maize, and most were about 17-17 1/2 ft. tall. This one was the tallest at over 18 feet tall.

RE: 18 ft tall

In my climate, this variety doesn't generally produce any ears. I was lucky this year and a few of my plants produced ears. The few that had ears had one or two.

RE: 18 ft tall

There is a corn maize about an hour from where I live, I took my grandsons there last year, we spent hours going through and getting lost, lots of fun. Then when the field was plowed down the birds were having a field day gathering all the stray cobs of corn and devouring them, it was a pretty sight for a long time.
