HEIRLOOM 1890 According to the 1936 James Vicks catalog: " Of all the white varieties this is surely the sweetest and most delicious corn to eat and it remains in an edible condition longer than any other variety after picking, retaining its sweet flavor for a long time. Plants are 6 to 7 feet tall often bearing 3 ears to a stalk. The cob is unusually small, and is covered with long, slender, shoe-peg like grains irregularly set". 75 seeds.

PLANTING: Outdoors- 1” deep, late spring when soil is at least 60 degrees. Thin to 8-12” apart. Plant in blocks (4-5 rows, 24-36” apart) to help with pollination. Harvest- Ready to be picked approximately 2 1/2 to 3 weeks after silks appear. Silks become dry and brown. The kernels should be plump and full. Test by pressing your fingertip into a kernel, looking for a “milky’ appearance. Best picked in the morning and refrigerate/cool right away. Tips- Keep weeded and well watered. Plant in fertile soil and add a high-nitrogen organic fertilizer every few weeks until tassels form.
