|'Golden Jubillee' is generally ready for harvest between 90 and 100 days. This is an old variety for late summer, although in poor summers the cobs may not mature, especially in cooler regions. Ears are 8.5 to 9 inches long and have 16 to 20 rows of sweet kernels which will hold their sweetness for some time after picking. 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.
