Corn

Plant 12 inches apart and arrange in blocks of at least 4 rows for proper pollination which is needed for well filled ears. If you lack sufficient space for enough plants for good pollination, try hand-pollinating by cutting off the tassels and shaking their pollen on the silks.

Sweet corn is ready 18-24 days after the first silks show, the exact time dependent on the weather in the interim. Press ears 2 inches from the tips to assess kernel fullness. Harvest when the kernels are plump, soft, tender, and filled with a milky juice.

The last date to order items online is Sunday, March 22, 2020. Transplants will then be available for sale at the farm at a later date.

Sweet Corn · Ambrosia Ah! Those heavenly moments of high summer! Out of the pot come steaming ears of bicolor bliss. Into my mouth where the tender corny kernels mix their sweetness into a total sensation of ambrosial delight. Our corn tasters, for all their enjoyment of the process, are a contrary lot, so when they come to consensus, as they did on Ambrosia, we knew we’d found something good. Ambrosia is perfect for a wide range of markets, from fresh home-garden use to long-distance shipping. The 6½’ plants show good early vigor. In stressful conditions the tips don’t always fill.

Silver Queen has long set the standard for late-maturing sweet corn with large handsome ears, replete with glossy white creamy sweet kernels that fill to the very tips. 8–9′ tall plants.
