"Kandy Korn" is one of the big winners among more recent innovations in sweet corn. It sets ears of about 8", and they retain their sweetness up to two weeks after harvest, making this a great variety for the home garden.
When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant after the 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.
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.
