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.
