75 days. Zea mays. (F1) Plant produces good yields of 8" long ears of red corn. Yes, it's really red! This is an extra sweet, tender variety that is very flavorful! The ears have 16 to 18 rows of kernels. Best when picked when it is blush red for maximum sweetness. Or you can let it ripen to full red so it can develop its rich, old fashioned flavor. There is no need to isolate from other corns, but we suggest that you grow another Sugar Enhanced variety variety to help with pollination. An added bonus the red tassels and stalks make fantastic autumn decorations. This is a Sugar Enhanced Variety (se+). Excellent choice for home gardens.

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.
