81 days. High quality delicious yellow sweet corn. Beautiful husk package with 8? inch ears that is tender and easy to grow. This corn has great holding ability after harvest and is disease resistant to Rust and Stewart’s Wilt. 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.
Side dress your Corn plants with a high-nitrogen fertilizer.Harvest your Sweet Corn once the silks have dried — this will be approximately 3 weeks after silking.
Harvesting: break the stem of the ear (shank) close to the ear. Avoid breaking the main stock or tearing the stem from the stalk. Just hold the ear near the base and bend it down sharply. You can also bend it to the side.
You can expect at least one ear (sometimes more) from each stalk.In order to maintain the sugar content you will want to refrigerate your Sweet Corn right away.
Plants grow to 15 feet tall by 3 feet wide with long, strap-shaped green leaves. It is grown for the sweet corn that is eaten fresh (it also cans and freezes well) and for the dried kernels that become Pop Corn. Harvest sweet corn when the silks have dried; harvest pop corn when the stalks have dried. Sweet corn cobs are also used as animal silage and the stalks as fodder
