New "Sugar Pearl's" white, sweet kernals look perfect on the cobb and melt in your mouth. Block ears have distinct rows with good tip cover. 6' plants bear ears lower than most, making harvest easier.
When and Where to Plant: Tender Annual. Sow seed after all danger of frost has passed. Optimal soil temperature is 55ºF or higher (critical for good germination). Blocks of at least 4 rows 24" apart are needed for adequate pollination. Can also be started as transplants 3-4 weeks before planting date. Harvest when ear silks are dried and kernels are full to the tip. Soil should be fertilized with compost in spring, at about knee high and again when corn silks are first visible for optimal growth.
