HOW TO GROW CORN, SWEET

Sweet corn takes about 14 days to emerge from 50°F soils but only about 5 days to emerge at 70°F. Direct sow in mid May in the Midwestern U.S., in mid April in milder climates. Direct sow as early as mid February with row cover in mild temperate climates. In regions with short growing seasons, start indoors two plants per cell 2-4 weeks before last frost, plant out 0–2 weeks after frost. Some soak seeds in water tepid for an hour or two before planting. If cool and wet, plant shallow 1 to 1-1/2”. If hot and dry plant 2–3”. Plant in blocks to ensure the best wind pollination. corn types are sweet corn, starch, parch, flint, dent, popcorn and ornamental. Open pollinated corn varies more than hybrid corn. Soil pH 5.8-7.0. Hardiness zones 4-8. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 120–156 seeds per ounce, about 10–15 pounds per acre. Average 29M seeds per acre, ranges from 28M to 45M per acre. Federal germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 5-10 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 2 miles.

Cross of early varieties developed by Fred Ashworth of St. Lawrence Nurseries, introduced by Johnny’s Selected Seeds in 1978. Ashworth originally named his variety “Rat Selected” because it came from the bin of sweet corn most preferred by rats. Matures among the first of early varieties. Harvest early after half-silk for most sweetness otherwise will get starchy. Old fashion yellow corn flavor, 6-7” yellow ears on shorter 5–6’ tall plants ideal for family gardens, ears are at kid height. Germinates well in cool soils. Open-pollinated, this is old fashion pure corn seed you can save. Tags: Type: Sweet, Harvest: Early, Color: Yellow, Season: Summer, Certification: Organic.
