This early to mid season augmented supersweet variety is a winner! Enticing bicoloured kernels in 14-16 rows are sweet, plump and juicy. The ears begin to set on very strong plants when they are only 50cm (20in) high and show excellent tip fill. Short shanks on the cobs are easy snap which makes harvesting a breeze.

When planting in rows, space the seed 10-15cm (4-6in) apart, later thinning to 20-30cm (8-12in) apart with the rows 55-75cm (22-30in) apart. To ensure proper pollination, plant at least 3 to 4 rows. Corn can also be planted with 3 to 4 seeds per hill in hills spaced 30cm (12in) apart. Work in a good general vegetable fertilizer at planting, keep weeds under control and the soil evenly watered through the season. Sow only when soils have warmed to 18 C. Some years this happens in mid May, other years we need to wait until late May or early June.
