This is a sugary enhanced (se) variety whose breeding traces directly back to a single inbred variety developed in the 1960's in Illinois, said to be the original sweet corn with the "se" gene. Refinements to it were necessary, leading many breeders to select varieties with earlier maturity, better plant characteristics, and high eating quality. Lancelot is one of these descendents. Large, full ears (over 8") have 16 to 18 rows of big, sweet, tender kernels with very good corn flavor.? 1.5 oz packet, approx 150 seeds

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.
