The all-time favorite white sweet corn produces super-sweet ears up to 9" long on tall plants that often top 8 feet.

SKU 4CORNG
A lot of experienced gardeners swear by this one. Large ears with sparkling white kernels always seem to taste just right--fresh, crisp and sweet.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and plant after last frost. Soil should be fertilized with vegetable food and cultivated. To insure good pollination sow seed in blocks of at least 4 rows side by side rather than one long row. For succession, plant every 3 weeks until early summer.
Care: Cultivate weekly or mulch to control weeds. Fertilize when plants are 12-18"/30-46 cm. tall.
Harvesting: Pick when silks turn brown and ears are firm. Test by piercing a few kernels with thumbnail. The skin should be tender and the juice should look “milky”. To get the best taste, pick, cook, and eat the same day.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
