Sweet Corn

Postby Sunfish » Sun Aug 31, 2014 10:15 am

I planted peaches and cream and then the wind killed some of the plants so I planted something else.
I'm not sure but it may not have been sh2 or whatever. The corn isn't very good, more like field corn.

What's a good sweet corn ?
I'm new to this gardening

Sorry, that sucks when you put all that time and effort into one that's crappy.

The peaches & cream is one of the best that I've tried.
A couple other I've been pleased with are Trinity, Ecstase II. Both are bi-color, SE-SE, and fairly short season (65-70 days)
For a yellow, I've also been happy with Northern Xtra sweet.

I'm sure some others will have more suggestions, too.

G90 is just like peaches and cream except for the tassels are a different color. Merit is an oldie but a goodie too.

Peaches and Cream and Silver Queen are the best. Sometimes we have trouble finding Peaches and Cream seed. I do not put up a lot now like I used to when our daughter was at home.
