XTH3973 was a real standout in our test plots. Large 8-8.25" ears have a great eating quality, strong tip fill, and excellent tenderness and sweetness. The ears are set at 22" high on 6' plants. XTH3973's ears are covered with a dark green husk, ample flags and they are easy to harvest from the plant. 14-16 rows of very straight bright white kernels fill the ear well to the tip. Excellent yield potential and quality make XTH3973 a real winner in our eyes.
