SWEET CORN SEEDS
BODACIOUS Sweet Corn Seeds
This sugar-enhanced variety has an exceptional sweet flavor. Because Bodacious slowly converts sugar to starch, it will maintain its outstanding quality up to 10 days longer than most other corns. Stalks grow to 7 feet and produce 8-inch well-filled ears. Packet is 1 ounce, about 150 seeds.
DOUBLE STANDARD BICOLOR Corn Seeds
Zea mays, (OP) 73 days
Originating from an early 1900’s heirloom, this tasty bicolor corn matures early and germinates well in cooler soils, making it a great choice for gardeners with short growing seasons. The first open-pollenated bicolor corn, it produces tasty 7 inch ears with yellow and white kernels on sturdy, 5 foot plants.
DELECTABLE Sweet Corn Seeds
A remarkably sweet, sugar-enhanced hybrid with 8-9 inch ears covered with tender deep yellow, or white kernels. The rugged, easy to grow plants will reach 6-7 feet tall. Will maintain its quality much longer than regular corns.
How to Plant SWEET CORN Seeds
Direct sow 5-6 seeds per foot, about 1-2 inches deep in rows (a minimum of 4 rows will ensure pollination) 3 feet apart. Thin to 12 inches apart. Make 3 or 4 additional plantings at two week intervals to extend the season. Do not plant near popcorn. When the kernels ooze a milky juice when pierced, they are ready to harvest. If birds are a problem, sow in cell packs and transplant into the garden 1 foot apart. Planting is done from spring through early summer, beginning after all danger of frost, and when the ground has warmed.
