75 days. Zea mays. (F1) The 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 blushes 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 SE variety to help with pollination. An added bonus the red tassels and stalks make fantastic autumn decorations. A variety from the USA.

(SE) Sugary Enhancer Hybrids The SE varieties have the highest sugar content. It also has superior tenderness. Usually last over a week in the fridge. No isolation needed.

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.

We grew this two years ago and LOVED it. I planted this and a so-called edible miniture blue corn side by side (the blue was dreadful) in big pots in the back garden... the blue was supposedly geared for container gardening; I just planted a couple of clumps of the red on a lark becuase it was so pretty. I'm so glad I did. My husband was skeptical at first when I picked the first ears to make for dinner. He's a fan of sweet corn (the sweeter the better) but once he tried it, he was totally impressed. Not only was it gorgeous to serve (the color held up both boiled when we boiled them and tossed onto the grill in the husk), but the taste was absolutely fantastic. The yield was really good... in a small garden corn sometimes seems like such a waste of space, but each stalk produced really good sized ears (a couple of stalks gave us three ears.) I'm looking forward to growing this again this year. It is the only variety of corn I ever plan to grow again. Helen Pattskyn Metro-Detroit, Michigan

This is a great red corn! I planted it this year for the first time. The color is gorgeous and the taste is fantastic, sweet and tender. I plan to plant more of it next year in my New Jersey garden.

I grew up spoiled by eating home grown corn all summer every summer. This corn is so sweet and the kernels "pop" off the cob when eaten rather than tear off the cob getting stuck in my teeth. The flavor is outstanding and the color is interesting and appealing. My experience was not the same as other reviewers regarding the kernels retaining the red color after cooking. The water was red, but the kernels on my corn lost some of its color after boiling. Very good choice if you want a very flavorful corn variety.

I live in northern Canada and the corn did great. It is a light red but when you cook it it turns really deep read or when you dry them out. It has a very earthy flavour that is different that most other variaties but is worth it.
