  • Very popular white variety
  • Sturdy plants
  • 8-9 in. ears with 14-16 rows

This white sweet corn has stood the test of time. It's the most popular and recognizable white sweet corn in America. Silver Queen combines size, sweetness and lasting quality. Its sturdy, stalks produce large, 8- to 9-in. ears with 14-16 rows of creamy kernels. Resists many common corn diseases including Southern Leaf Blight, Northern Leaf Blight and Stewart's Wilt Disease. A (su) variety, it should be isolated from (sh2) varieties. For best results, sow Silver Queen Sweet Corn seed directly into the garden after soil temperatures have warmed to 60 degrees F. Plant in several short rows rather than one long one. 88 DAYS.
