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. Do not soak seeds before sowing. Open pollinated corn varies more than hybrids. 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.

In 1955 three acres of Golden Jubilee Sweet Corn gave Dr. Alan Kapuler food and shelter. One of the best corns bred in the USA, we offer the open pollinated selection from the original hybrid. Plants 6-8' tall, green, cobs with yellow-orange seeds high in zea-xanthin, one of the three pigments that protect our eyes from bleaching. A great sweet corn. A rich, buttery color and flavor- truly golden! True Gold has good production, resists lodging and long-standing sweetness. Large 9 inch golden-yellow ears with 18-20 rows of tender yellow kernels of superior flavor. Great for fresh eating, freezing on the cob and as kernel corn, canning, and ground for corn meal!

Prairie Road Organic Seed Certified Organic by Intl. Certification Services Seed grower since 1997
The family garden and a tradition of selective seed-saving for agronomic performance under organic conditions in northern climates and superb eating qualities, provides the basis for seed production at Prairie Road Organic Seed. Certified organic since 1977, David, Dan and Theresa Podoll began producing certified organic seed in 1997.

The Podolls have released four varieties bred in the garden and selected for the family table, including Uncle David’s Dakota Dessert squash, Dakota Rose watermelon, Dakota Black popcorn, and Dakota Sport tomato. They specialize in tomato seed improvement and production of many heritage varieties. Other seed crops include sweet corn, flint corn, pumpkin, beet, carrot, leek, cucumber, grey proso millet, rye, triticale, oats, buckwheat, and poppy.

The Podolls have cultured a rich family history of cooperative involvement and the Family Farmers Seed Cooperative was a natural fit philosophically, economically and socially. Cooperation and exchange have been the basis of varietal improvement and seed development for millennia. For the Podolls, the Family Farmers Seed Cooperative builds on that heritage and wisdom of the ages.
