How Sweet It Is Corn ( 87 days , F1 Hybrid )

3

Retaining its sweetness for many days after harvest is one of the qualities that made this the first white Supersweet hybrid corn to win the All America Selection award 20 years ago. One reason we found that this corn, plus the SE and SY types are beneficial to home gardeners is that you can wait a few days after harvest, to process by freezing or canning. 16-18 rows of delectable kernels on 8 ½ ears, grows to 7 feet. 150 seeds

 

 

 

PLANTING:

Germination- 7-14 day

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.

How Sweet It Is

About what I expected, some good and some bad. Germination is poor because seed is not treated. I usually double plant to try to compensate. Packets are expensive and bulk seed is not available. Corn is one of the very best available which is why I go through the effort.
