Good cold soil vigor. Extra large ears. Exceptional eating quality. Excellent kernel contrast. One of the most popular vegetables, freshly-picked corn-on-the-cob is simply hard to beat for delicious flavor. Served hot and dripping with butter, your mouth is probably already watering. Kernels are tasty and tender, and are produced on vigorous, easy-to-grow plants. Great for eating fresh, freezing, or canning.

Plant: Sow seeds directly in the garden in spring after soil has warmed. Does best in deeply cultivated soil that is high in nitrogen. To aid pollination, avoid planting in a single row. For succession, plant every 3 weeks until early fall.

Care: Water generously and fertilize when plants are 12-18" (30-45cm) tall.

Harvest: Pick when silks turn brown. Test by piercing a kernel with a thumbnail to see if it spurts milky juice.

Your Health: Great source of a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.
