Details

We were smitten when these darling dwarf plants were growing in our 2013 trials, and enamoured when the peeled back the husk revealed steel blue kernels...but the flavor is really what won us over. This corn is hands down one of the best open-pollinated sweet corns we have tasted! The kernels turn from white to steel blue when at the peak eating stage, and turn a bit greener when cooked. Each plant yields about 2 ears. A great variety for small spaces and container gardens. Due to the small plant size, the ears are about half the size of an ear of standard sweet corn.
Number of Seeds 50 seeds
Spacing in Row 8 inches
Spacing Between Rows 36 inches
Planting Depth 1 inch
Days to Germination 5-10 days
Days to Maturity 75 days
Height at Maturity 60 inches
Width at Maturity 8 inches
Direct sow outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, until mid-summer. Sow corn seeds directly 3-4 inches apart, in rows spaced 36 inches apart in blocks of at least 4 rows to insure proper pollination for kernel formation. Thin plants to indicated spacing if necessary. Corn requires fertile soil and little attention. Water during dry periods. Harvest when ears are full and kernels are swollen and milky. Take care not to let ears over-ripen.
