|A tender and exceptionally sweet midseason bi-color sweet corn. Ears are 8-8 1/2 inches, fat with small kernels. Plants average 6 feet tall. It is widely adapted but the soil temperature should be above 55F at planting time. Matures in 80 days. 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.
