SPACING: Sow seeds 4 to 6 inches apart. Space rows 2 to 3 feet apart depending upon available space.

GERMINATION: Usually 7 to 10 days. Keep seedbed moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

The husks and stalks are purple. Outstanding large ear variety. Corn has best flavor when ears are light to medium yellow. To conserve space and for best pollination, plant in blocks made up of short rows, thinned to 8 to 12 inches apart in all directions. Fertilize and cultivate soil prior to planting. Kandy Korn retains its excellent sweetness and eating quality even 48 hours after harvesting.
