Not just a novelty,
this little plant makes tasty, good-sized
golden ears super early. Yummy corn flavor.
We really liked the way the 3'-4' stalks didn't cast so much shade on other crops. Great for your first planting before the main crop, or for a last-minute one. Great for timing to avoid cross-pollination with other corns. And of course, kids love it.
BOTANICAL NAME: Zea mays
Plant in early spring 2 weeks after the last frost, through mid-summer. Good drainage and full sun are important. Corn is a greedy feeder - fertilize well. Plant in blocks of at least 5' on a side for good pollination. Mulch or a companion crop of beans is good for yield and soil. Short stalks mature quickly, so watch carefully and harvest as soon as juice from kernels turns milky.
