This is a very sweet bi-coloured variety that is great for eating fresh, freezing or canning. Sturdy 6ft (2m) tall plants. This is an excellent variety for home gardeners and commercial growers. Rows of mouth-watering, tender, juicy kernels fill the beautifully shaped 7in/18cm long ears.

Sweet corn will grow in most any soil save for the two extremes – too wet or too dry. Best growth in sunny, wind-sheltered site with a well-drained, organic soil. Soil pH levels of 5.5 to 6.5. Sow seed after all danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed up to the recommended minimum temperature – planting any sooner delays germination drastically, increasing the risk of damage or destruction by insects or rot before sprouting. Sufficient watering is particularly important at flowering and when the cobs begin to fill. Cobs are generally ready for harvesting when the ‘silks’ turn dark brown. Test by piercing a kernel with thumbnail to see if it spurts a milky juice.
