Description

A ‘sugary enhanced’ variety of fast growing, long sweet cobs with good tolerance of common rust which helps to keep plants healthy, particularly in wet summers.

Sow indoors, March-May. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in pots of compost. Keep warm and moist. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, into well-cultivated, fertile soil, when frosts are over. Plant in blocks and allow 40cm (16″), both ways, between plants, disturbing roots as little as possible.

Or, sow outdoors, during May, 1.5cm (½”) deep, two seeds together at 40cm (16″) intervals in block formation. Sowings may benefit from cloche protection if temperatures drop. Thin to the stronger seedling when large enough to handle. Harvest: August-September.

Tip: Planting in blocks helps pollination. Harvest when silks start to turn brown. Eat sweet corn as soon as possible after picking, before sugar turns to starch.
