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.

Perfect

by

Excellent maize variety to use in a 3 sisters garden to support pole beans. Did great in the worst weather summer in my life here in central Massachusetts. Grew to 8 or 9 feet , multiple ears per stalk. Braided and drying . Can't wait to use this winter.

A dream

Great production , had a few grow 12 ft , most 9 to 10 ft. 2 and 3 ears on every stalk. We grow in a traditional 3 sisters garden. Plan to use in traditional dishes of my Wendat ancestors over the winter. Will grow again here in central Massachusetts.
