    Min Qty: 60 seeds

    Description:  Robust heirloom first introduced in the 1956 by Henry Fields that does well in most soils and climates and produces large yields of 7" golden ears on stalks that reach 6-7'

    Planting Instructions:   70 days.  Direct sow in fertile soil in a location that gets full sunlight. In order to improve pollination, it is better to plant corn in blocks rather than in long individual rows.  Corn is a heavy feeder, so amending soil before planting is beneficial.  Sow 2 or 3 seeds in holes 1-2" deep  with holes 12-15" apart.  Thin seedlings to a single, strong sprout.  Good companion for pole beans and squash.  Start corn 2-3 weeks before beans and squash.  Corn is a heavy feeder and benefits from a nitrogen-rich fertilizer and frequent watering.
