In the land of Geomeo, labored survival scientist, Hank Zil. Amidst the famine, he determined to create a type of corn that produced more than the “ear kind” which now grew in their limited river valley area He envisioned a type that would grow as a cone directly from the soil. He succeeded. Corn that stood 8 feet high and produced almost three bushels of corn each! At least that was his expectation. The great day arrived, the ribbon was cut, and the harvesters moved in. Grand opening success!
That, my friend, was the origin of Coned Corn – lifeline of Geomeons!
And if you believe that, you will also believe the coned corn was tried in the USA, but it was a flop. However, the coned corn experiment lead to canned corn which has been quite successful. 😀
