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.

This is the best corn I've ever had. In six 25 foot rows we got over 200 ears of corn and my kids (both teenagers) love eating it without butter or salt. It is super tasty and easy to grow. I recommend to everyone!

In my opinion it has a better flavor and produces more than the silver queen. We have been growing it for two years now and the family loves it!
