Know Before You Grow: Corns
Corn is one of the most versatile and best-loved veggies you can grow. It's been cultivated for thousands of years, increasing in popularity over time, as its attributes have become more and more obvious. Not only is it delicious in a wide variety of dishes as well as fresh from the stalk, but its uses go well beyond the culinary world. From Corn-on-the-cob and popcorn to syrups and cereals and an abundance of other products (edible and not!), this tasty vegetable is truly remarkable!

When to Sow
Corn is best sown outdoors in situ after all danger of frost has passed in spring. Sow in warm soil -- optimum temperature is at least 60 degrees F.
Sweet Corn can be started indoors 2 weeks before the last frost at a temperature of 70 to 75 degrees F, but direct sowing is recommended.
How to Sow
If you want a continuous crop, sow every two weeks until early spring. Sow at a depth of 4 times the size of the seed in rows that are 24 to 36 inches apart. Plant in full sun in rich, moist, well-drained soil. Once the seedlings appear, thin them to 3 to 12 inches apart. If you have started them inside and are transplanting them, do so when they have at least two sets of true leaves and allow them the same amount of space as previously mentioned.
Expect germination in 7 to 10 days.
- Cross-pollination can occur between different varieties of Corn, affecting taste, color, and other qualities. To prevent this, isolate each type by at least 700 feet, or allow at least 14 days between times of maturity.
- Do not plant sooner than 10 days to 2 weeks after the date of the last frost. If you plant too early, your seedlings may die, or their growth can be delayed.
- Since Corn is wind-pollinated, it's better to plant 4 or more short, side-by-side rows than 1 or 2 long rows. This will help pollination and ear development.

Choosing a Corn Variety
Regular Sweet Hybrids
Traditional, old-fashioned Corn flavor, delicious without an emphasis on sweetness.
Sugar Enhanced Varieties
Sweeter than regular strains, and with a sweetness that lasts longer after the Corn has been picked.
A creamy, tender texture and no planting isolation needed from other Sweet Corn.
Super Sweet Varieties
Bred for twice the sweetness of regular Corn. Will hold their tenderness and sweetness up to two weeks.
They must be planted in totally warm soil and kept isolated from other types by 200 feet or 14 days planting time.
New Triple Sweet Varieties
Wonderfully sweet, but they were bred to add more original Corn taste to the sweetness, improve crunchy texture, and hold their flavor and sweetness even longer.
Requires no isolation from other Sweet Corns.
Growing Tips for Corn
- Side dress your Corn plants with a high-nitrogen fertilizer.
- Harvest your Sweet Corn once the silks have dried -- this will be approximately 3 weeks after silking.
- When harvesting break the stem of the ear (shank) close to the ear. Avoid breaking the main stock or tearing the stem from the stalk. Just hold the ear near the base and bend it down sharply. You can also bend it to the side.
- You can expect at least one ear (sometimes more) from each stalk.
- In order to maintain the sugar content, you will want to refrigerate your Sweet Corn right away.
