Do you yearn for the seasons first taste of corn from your garden? This corn will get you jump-started. One of the earliest bicolors, the 7-1/2 inch ears are filled with delectable kernels that will make your mouth water at the first sight of their ripened ears. Grows on shorter 4 to 5 foot stalks. 1.5 oz packet, approx 150 seeds
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.
