There are some U tube videos on tall corn?
I don't know if they give their sources.
Mexican white corn is supposed to grow tall also?

PandP seeds has Jala----pricey?
JLHudson has tall white corn seeds at reasonable price.

Pandp doesn't have jala I just checked. YouTube source for seed is $35.00 for 5 seeds not paying that...

If you go to ebay and search for giant corn there are several types and colors of giant corn there. The one you are looking for is there but pretty expensive but some of the others are inexpensive. They sound like fun and come in my favorite color...Pink!

I'm all ears! Would love to see your results.

I hadn't heard of Jala corn but it sure looks interesting. http://www.cimmyt.org/en/what-we-do/maize-research/item/prid...

I don't know very much about growing corn, but it looks like you might have had a pollinating problem? How much corn seed did you plant or try to grow? Each corn kernel must be pollinated in order to grow, that's why it's recommended to grow at least 3 rows of corn, 8 feet or more long.

I hand pollinated it, poured it into a cup and poured pollen directly over the tassels for a week and a half, after that no more corn had pollen left. We had perfect weather during pollination. The odd placed kernels are a trait of this variety. This plant had fasciation too.
