GERMINATION: Usually 7 to 10 days. Keep seedbed moderately moist during germination. Plant in full sun.

Ed's Special Advice

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. To preserve best flavor and tenderness, pick corn just a few minutes before use. Sweet corn benefits from rich soil, side dress with fertilizer just before tassels appear and water deeply.
