89 days. Zea mays. (F1) The plant produces good yields of 8" long ears of yellow corn. The ears have 14 to 16 rows of tender kernels. It has a creamy texture and delicate flavor. This variety retains sweetness for days after picking. Great for freezing. This is a Sugary Enhanced Variety (se+) which means these varieties will stay sweet and tender for 10-14 days after reaching maturity. Good cold tolerance. An excellent choice for home gardens and market growers. Disease Resistant: SW.

Corn Seed Planting Information:

Corn likes hot summers. Corn should be planted in specific patterns and distances, and separated by rows. Plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds 2 weeks after last frost date and when soil has warmed up. Corn needs warm soil to germinate. The seeds may rot if the soil is too cool. Soil temperature needs to be higher than 60 F. Plant the seeds in blocks of at least 3 rows in each direction as corn is pollinated by the wind. Planting in blocks also protects stalks from damage from high winds. Plants can grow 3 to 8 ft tall.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires well loose rich soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro. Side dress with 33-0-0 plant food.

Harvest Tips:

Carefully pull back the husk to see if kernels are fully formed. Use a sharp knife to remove corn from stalks.


SW - Stewart's Wilt

Scientific Name: Erwinia stewartii

Type: Bacterium

Stewart's Wilt is a disease that affects the growth of corn. Stewart's wilt is common throughout the eastern regions of the United States. The disease is transmitted to corn plants during feeding by adult corn flea beetles. These beetles overwinter in the soil and upon emergence in the spring, commence feeding on the plants, and contaminates corn seedlings. An entire field of corn may become infected in a relatively short period of time. Some or all of the plants may die, and severe yield reductions result. The bacteria is carried in the digestive tract of the corn flea beetle. Beetles feeding on infected corn tissue acquire the bacteria and spread it further. Wilting of foliage is often associated with the infection, plants may be stunted, and in severe cases, death may result. When seedlings and young plants are infected, they will wilt and the main stalks may die. Symptoms include lesions on the leaves. The lesions appear as long wavy streaks that turn yellow and eventually brown. Entire leaves may die if the disease is severe and the stalks may develop fungal rot and become weaken. The disease can cause substantial yield loss due to leaf damage and weakened plants resulting from stalk rot. The infestation year to year depends largely on winter temperatures, and how many beetles carrying the disease survive the winter. Mild winter temperatures favor survival of the beetle, thus the disease can be greater the following spring. When winter temperatures are greater than 24°F during a two month period, a moderate to high risk of Stewart’s wilt is possible. Beetles carrying the bacteria that survive the winter could infect corn plants next spring. Insecticide treatments helps reduce flea beetle populations. The best option is to use hybrid disease resistant varieties.
