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.

Join in tasting the development of the Anasazi x Tuxedo cross sweet corns. The Anasazi corn is a diverse landrace from another era. We crossed the Anasazi, pollinating it with Tuxedo, a sweeter hybrid market corn with excellent seedling vigor and good husk cover. From this cross, made a decade ago, 3 or 4 new and distinct varieties arise: white corn, yellow corn and multi-colored corn. Some are yet to be named. Offered here are the seeds are from the F5. That means the corn has been grown, and the best ears or seeds saved, for 5 generations. All of them have stabilized to a point where you can reliably save and re-grow the seed. This selection has occurred using only natural means on organically farmed ground. These Anasazi cross varieties have large ears with large kernels, making them productive plants. They are creamy and stand up well to boiling or grilling, but they are only modestly sweet. Increasing the sweetness is one of the major goals of our ongoing breeding program. Expect sweeter corn in coming years. Try it now, try it again next year in the 6th generation and beyond.
Tux Multi F5 - (Festivity f5) In this variety we are attempting to keep most of the wildness and diversity of the Anasazi corn. Ears are colorful and variable. Most are quite large. Colors become more pronounced as corn matures. For a lot of color, you want the corn a little over ripe. At a more tender stage, the kernels often have only a hint of color.
Tux White - (Tuxana F5): This corn went through an intensive ear to row selection in 2013. Interestingly, it is a white corn selected from a cross between a multi-colored corn and a yellow corn. It is the furthest developed and seed should be available fall 2014. out of stock this year.
Tux Yellow FF5: This yellow corn selection from the Anasazi cross makes a lot of corn. It will be going through ear to row selection this coming summer.
Tux BiColor F5: They say an open pollinated bi-colored (white and yellow) corn is not possible. Yet as white and yellow corns separate out you get corn that looks bi-colored. I have saved the seed separately and offer it here. If you save and re-grow the seed - you might not get as even a distribution of white and yellow kernels in future generations but this is what an open pollinated bi-colored looks like.
