Northern Xtra-Sweet Bicolor Improved Sweet Corn

Excellent Cool Soil Vigor for Early Plantings

Northern Xtra-Sweet Bicolor Improved Sweet Corn

Excellent Cool Soil Vigor for Early Plantings

An improvement on Nothern Xtra Sweet Bicolor, this improved version offers early vigor, early maturity, sweet flavor and an eating quality that's much better than the original. Northern Extra-Sweet Bicolor Sweet Corn Improved has bicolored, 8 in. ears with 14-16 rows of medium-sized kernels that are very sweet. Corn is excellent for fresh eating, freezing and canning. Ears are easy to pick. For best results and pollination, plant the corn seeds in blocks of at least four rows that are 36 in. apart. Seeds should be directly sown into the ground after the soil has warmed to 65 degrees F. and all danger of frost has passed. Approx. 250 seeds per pkt. 71 DAYS.
