Long, elegant 8-inch ears are packed with remarkable crunchy-sweet kernels on this All-America Selection winner. One of an entirely new type of corn called TripleSweet, Honey Select Hybrid combines the crunchy texture of sugary-enhanced types with the extra sweetness and great holding ability of the supersweets! The result? Delicious!
TripleSweet corn actually contains TWO kernel types, selected and reselected to create an ear that is 75% sugary-enhanced and 25% supersweet. Ideal for home gardens, it needs no isolation from other corn, and has great staying power on the stalk.
Honey Select Hybrid was applauded by the AAS judges both for taste and ease of growth. These plump golden kernels are the best-tasting you will find, and they keep so well, you don’t have to harvest them all at once! Taste, texture, and hold — that’s the TripleSweet advantage!
Direct-sow corn seeds after the last spring frost, when the soil has warmed. Corn is famously easy to grow in any sunny spot, but be sure to plant it outdoors — it doesn’t transplant well. To extend your corn harvest, make successive sowings weekly up until mid-July, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates. Consider growing a Three Sisters planting as well — corn, beans, and squash planted together all help each other grow and produce their best, as the Native Americans knew centuries ago!
Corn seed in packet sizes of 1 lb. or smaller is now available for shipment to Canada!
