75 days. With better after-harvest staying power than most corn, Bodacious offers huge yields that you needn’t rush to eat all at once! The tender 8-inch ears — nearly 2 inches across — are filled with about 18 rows of bright yellow kernels, all bursting with sweet flavor. Strong stalks reach 7 feet tall.
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.
