A home garden variety grown for fresh eating or canning, this standard, late-season white corn has narrow “shoe peg” (non-rowed) kernels. Tapered 7-8" ears grow on 7-8' stalks that often produce two ears. This historic variety was introduced in 1890 by S. D. Woodruff & Sons of Orange, Connecticut. 88-92 days.
Direct Seed: 4" Apart
Germination: 4-21 Days
Rows Apart: 36-48"
Light: Full Sun
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.
