sweet corn

Our sweet corn is fantastic.  It is both sweet and tender!  We have been growing corn for 33 years and have experimented with numerous varieties each year.  The 1980's introduced the Super Sweets and we began with Extra Early Super Sweet.  It has often been the first sweet corn on the market in summer and we still grow a bit of it for the early market..  Over the years we have grown both yellow and bicolored super sweet varieties that have proven to be very sweet with a crunchy kernel.  Some of you have preferred a more tender kernel.  We have listened to you and have discovered Gourmet Sweet corn.  It is a great combination.  All the sweetness of a super sweet with a tender kernel.!

rows of corn

Corn is planted in rows.  Planting begins when the small plants are past the danger of a frost.  Provinding you with corn by the beginning of August is risky business as frost will set back or kill the young tender plants.  Planting intervals supply you with young corn throughout the summer and fall.  If we escape the full moon September frost we might be lucky enough to have delicious corn into October.!
