7. In pedigree 4812 (formerly 474-13 and derived from Maize Co-šp 45-144-1 # 2) there were 23 out of 95 with "tassel-like" ear. The character is not like Ramosa in that the tip of the ear is also divided. The "tassel-like" ear has a framework which is exactly similar to the framework of a tassel. Limited numbers of seeds are formed on the basal portions of the branches. Seed will be furnished gladly to anyone interested.
