Description

Plant Type: Vegetable

Preparation Ideas: Corn is ready to harvest approximately 20 days after silk first appears on cobs. The silk turns brown and the husk will be green. Remove cobs from stalks just before eating. Remove husks and silk from corn ears. Bring water in a large pot to boil (you can add salt to the water if desired). There should be enough water in the pot to cover the ears. Using tongs, carefully insert corn into boiling water. Cover pot and let the water return to boil. Shut off heat and keep lid on pot for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Kernels should be fork tender. Carefully remove corn from water using tongs. Cool corn slightly for handling. Eat unadorned or with butter and pepper.

Days to Germination: 7 to 14 days

Days to Maturity: 60-65 days

Planting Depth: 5 cm (2″)

Instructions: Sow seed directly in soil once all danger of frost has passed. Separate from other varieties by 7.5 m (25”) to avoid cross pollination and to maintain its unique characteristics. Planting in a block instead of a long single row will help in pollination.

Suggestions: Corn is ready to harvest approximately 20 days after silk first appears on cobs. The silk turns brown and the husk will be green. Remove cobs from stalks just before eating. Remove husks and silk from corn ears. Mineral oil on the silk deters bugs.
