A new yellow sweet corn
from Oregon farmer/breeder Jonathan Spero of Lupine Knoll Farm.
Away from the corn belt, he is growing non-GMO, non-hybird corns for organic gardeners and farmers.
Top Hat was a favorite in our trail this year, with well-filled, plump ears and a rich, sweet flavor.
Its well-wrapped husk also seemed to resist corn earworms better than most other corns. We think you will love it.
BOTANICAL NAME: Zea mays
An early variety that can be ready by mid-Summer. Does well in many soils-does best in deep, rich soils. Good drainage and full sun important. Must be planted in a section at least 5 feet square for good cross-pollination. Sow seed 2 weeks after average date of last frost. Best planted in succession, directly into garden 15" apart.
