Corn is a warm weather veggie so don’t plant too soon. To ensure proper pollination, you should plant corn in blocks as opposed to groupings here and there. Plant one variety in the typical backyard setting to avoid cross pollination between varieties. It needs moist soil to develop properly, so keep the roots moist to a depth of 12”. Corn is ready for harvest when kernels squirt a milky substance when poked.

Varieties:

  • Honey N Pearl: (76 days) Early-maturing, tender bi-color variety as 9” ears. All-America Selections Winner.
  • Seneca Red: ornamental type
