Bodacious RM Hybrid Sweet Corn (se)

Strong Disease Resistance!

  • 8-in. golden yellow ears
  • 16 full rows on every ear
  • Creamy texture with good corn flavor
  • Resistant to many common corn diseases
  • Sugary-enhanced hybrid
Combines exceptionally tender, flavorful sweet corn and good disease resistance. Bodacious RM Hybrid Sweet Corn is resistant to many of the common corn diseases including Common Rust, Maize Dwarf Mosaic and Northern Corn Leaf Blight. But, what gardeners really like about Bodacious is its sweet, flavorful golden yellow ears. An improved variety, Bodacious has 16 full rows on every 8 in. ear. It's excellent for eating fresh, canning and freezing. Bodacious is a sugary-enhanced hybrid (se) and has higher sugar levels than (su) varieties and good holding qualities. Sugary-enhanced hybrids are known for their superior tenderness, creamy texture and good "corn" flavor. When planting, isolate from all (sh2) and (su) corn varieties. 75 DAYS
