it gets its name from the fact that the cobs are not much bigger in diameter than a pencil. Although most companies simply state that it is a white corn, the color of the kernels are actually a dingy white color with a yellowish hue and tips that pick up a reddish tinge from the cob's coloring. Stands dry weather well. It has a very hearty corn flavor that is missing in most modern corns.
