Description: Pre-1885 Dutch heirloom. Delicious popcorn from 8' plants that support two ears per stalk. 26-28 rows per ear of creamy white kernals that taste so good, you may decide to skip the butter!
Planting Instructions: 102 days. Direct sow in fertile soil in a location that gets full sunlight when soil temps are at least 60F. Alternately, start indoors and transplant when 3-6" high. 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.
