75 days. Named for its delectable taste, Ambrosia is as beautiful to see as it is to eat. The 8-inch-long ears are bursting with about 16 rows of jam-packed kernels in a checkerboard pattern of white and yellow. Measuring 2 inches across, the ears are large and very full — the kernels are plump, juicy, and savory-sweet. Plants grow 6 1/2 feet tall, reaching their height earlier in the season than most. Good tolerance of Stewart’s Wilt.
Sugar-enhanced corn is creamier and more tender than Super Sweet, with stronger old-fashioned corn flavor, yet is sweeter than regular Sweet hybrids. This delicious variety retains its sweetness for up to 10 days after harvest. No isolation from other corn is necessary, and germination is easier than with Super Sweets.
Sow after last spring frost, when the soil is warm. Corn is famously easy to direct-sow in any sunny spot. To extend your corn harvest, make successive plantings weekly up to mid-July, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates. Pkt is 200 seeds. Corn seed in packet sizes of 1 lb. or smaller is now available for shipment to Canada.
