CORN - Honey and Pearl (5g)
76 days. This early-maturing, tender bicolor of outstanding eating quality is one of the finest Super Sweets you will ever grow . . . or eat! The cylindrical 9-inch ears are a pleasure to look at, with 16 to 18 rows of white and yellow kernels -- symmetrical, tightly-packed, and plump. The ears are very tightly husked, reducing the risk of infestation from corn ear-worm. And these robust 6-foot plants are resistant to Common Rust and Stewart's Wilt. Big yields!
Super Sweet corn is specially bred to contain twice the sugar of regular sweet corn, and these hybrids retain their flavor and tenderness up to 2 weeks longer than Regular Sweets. They require warm soil for good germination, and must be isolated from other corn varieties by 200 feet or at least 2 weeks' planting time.
Sow after last spring frost, when the soil is warm. Corn is famously easy to direct-sow in any sunny spot. To extend your corn harvest, make successive plantings weekly up to mid-summer, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates.
