|'Earlivee' is generally mature within 60 days, making it one of the quickest sweet corns. 12 to 14 rows of sweet kernels on 6 to 7 inch long ears, protected by a medium green husk. Plants are about 5 feet tall, and need much nutrition to develop quickly. Originally domesticated by Mesoamericans, it is a staple food with many other traditional uses. Home gardeners love to grow corn, and there are many varieties suited to different climates. Plant seeds 1 inch deep in rows or clumps, two weeks after the last frost date. Corn needs rich soil, full sun and adequate moisture to produce good ears. It is wind pollinated, so if you want to save seed, you will need to either stagger the planting time of different varieties, or plant them 1/4 mile apart. Water deeply.
