Golden kernels, two or more 15-17cm cobs per plant, excellent flavoured, early cropping, plants usually 1.5m. 73-80 days.
Nutritious summer vegetable, originating from the Americas. Whilst open pollinated sweet corn is recorded as having significantly higher mineral and protein content (see ECO FARM page 38 - Charles Walters) and are tasty : they are not as sweet as the sickly sweet hybrid supermarket varieties of today. Very heavy feeder. Requires good soaking in dry weather. Grow as Maize and harvest as soon as silks turn brown. To save seeds, plant each variety at least 2 kilometres apart or at least at one month intervals to prevent cross pollination. Keeping varieties pure and saving seed is now very important. Sow after frost. (We cannot send to W.A. or Tasmania, check your local Eden Seeds outlets for Sweet Corn).
