|Good cool soil vigor, medium height plants. Narrow, 9 inch ears with small yellow and white kernels. Dark husks cover the tip well. Good for roadside stands or U-pick operations. Use above the 38th parallel. 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.
