Sweet Corn Miracle F1

Botanical Name: Zea mays

8 grams


Sweet corn was grown by several Native American tribes, who passed it onto European settlers. A naturally occurring ‘sugary  enhanced’ gene produces very sweet, tender, large cobs with lots of fine kernels per cob. Enjoy steamed or add to stews, rice, risottos, soups and pasta.

How To Grow

Sow 2.5cm (1in) deep into growing position, a sunny position that offers shelter from strong winds. Cover in fine soil and firm down gently. Keep moist. Grow in 2m (6.5ft) rows, 50cm (20in) apart. Water regularly, particularly in hot weather. For succession, follow up sowing should occur when first plants are 20cm (8in) tall. Harvest: 12-16 weeks from sowing
