Sugar Baby Hybrid Sweet Corn (se)

Extra Sweet, Early Bicolor

A great way to start sweet corn season! This extra-early bicolor produces 8.5 in. ears with 12-16 rows of extra-sweet corn. It exhibits good cold tolerance, making it an ideal choice for areas with short growing seasons—or those gardeners who want to enjoy an early start to sweet corn season. Plant Sugar Baby Hybrid Sweet Corn seeds at the time of the last spring frost. While corn can stand a light frost, it cannot stand a heavy one. Because corn is wind-pollinated, plant several short rows instead of one long one. Plant seeds 10-12 in. apart in rows 30-36 in. apart. 65 DAYS.
All Gurney's corn seed is now treated.
