68 Day Quickie is a Winner
Reviewed By: Hal Graham (Crab Orchard, TN)
I've been growing this 68 day Quickie for the past 4 years with excellent results. It germinates well [80%] in my somewhat heavy soil. Last year I also tried the new 'Gotta Have It" corn, and it had a terrible germination rate some 20% in the same soil. This year I'm going 100% with the 68 day Quickie. My rule of thumb - "The larger the seed kernels - the better the germination rate". Happy gardening.

I read some reveiws as to short stalks and poor kernal placement.I grow sweet corn of all 3 types (su,se&sh2)first of all if you want your corn cob to fill out make sure you block your corn rows say you only have 500 seeds do 5 rows of 100 seeds to polinate well.remember the tasles fall on the silk to form those kernals if it only carrys thru 2 rows its just not going to do good.befor even getting to that point corn likes nitrogen and lots of it.I start with 12-12-12 at planting then when corn is about knee high i go 19-19-19.Remember to rotate your corn every year each year pick a diffrent corner of your garden.Corn sucks your soild dry of all it has.However some years are bad if one year is poor try again next year then decide.Ps its try sh2 is harder to grow then su or even se but very very possible soak that corn over night in a warm warm place befor planting it and look for a day befor a rain to aid in the germination.

This corn grew to about 2-3 feet tall but produced ears that were only 2 inches long. The time frame was correct. I planted in the first week on April and they are done today. That part was a total flop. On the other hand, I ate the tiny ears fresh without cooking and all I can say is the taste was AMAZING!! They were soft without cooking and the sweetest corn I have ever tried. I am very sad since this would have been amazing had it worked.
