Germ 7-14 days
An All American Selection for 2001. The breeding lines in hybrid sweet corns are becoming blurred, this one is 75% SE and 25% SH (supersweet). The practical effect of this is that Honey Select does not have to be isolated from other sweet corns and mature ears may be harvested over a longer period. The 8” ears have an 18-20 row count and the flavor is sweet & long lasting. 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.
