Northern Yellow Xtra-Sweet Hybrid Sweet Corn (sh2)

Great for Northern Growers

  • Early variety ready in 67 days
  • Emerges while the soil is cool
  • Large super-sweet 9-in. ears
  • Top choice for Northern gardeners
  • Often two ears per stalk
If you want to be the first in your neighborhood to harvest sweet corn, this is the one for you. Northern Yellow Xtra-Sweet Hybrid Sweet Corn emerges while the soil is cool and produces strong seedlings. Its vigorous growth and large, super-sweet, 9-in. ears set this early variety apart from the pack. It's an excellent choice for Northern growers, or gardeners who want to get a jump-start on the sweet corn season. Sow Northern Yellow Xtra-Sweet directly into the garden at the time of the last spring frost. While sweet corn can withstand a light frost, it can't withstand a heavy one. 67 DAYS.
