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.
Ratings & Reviews
Best sweet corn ever!
I only wish I could give this more stars! Every now and then we grow something that exceeds our wildest expectations. This was one of those. Planted in a 3 sisters garden here in central Massachusetts . We had several plants over 12 ft tall. 2 and 3 ears per stalk. 12 to 14 inch ears . Unbelievable production, unbelievable flavor. We canned kernels, froze ears, and braided ears to hang and dry. Real sweet corn ! This an every year for us going forward.
Terrible in my opinion
I grew 100 stalks of this corn in two different location's. It took 90 days to finally get 20 ears of corn. Most were still not ripe even after the silk was completely dead.
Threw the remaining seeds away.
Every year from now on
Wow! Amazing producer ! Huge ears ! Huge flavor. Canned 40 pints of kernels, froze 120 ears , braided and dried 80 ears. Grew in a traditional 3 sisters garden here in central Massachusetts and I can say we have definitely found our "green corn"
