Product Description

75 days. Summertime and corn on the cob! If we had to choose just two vegetables that are much better home-grown than store-bought, corn and tomatoes would be our choice. Luscious is a bicolor corn that matures in 75 days — an advantage in a areas with a shorter growing season. Flavorful 8" ears with 16 to18 rows of very tender kernels hold their sweetness and fl avor longer than other varieties.

This packet plants two 6 foot rows.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures are warm (60 - 65º F).

When to start inside: not recommended; corn seed does not transplant well.

Special sowing instructions: easy to grow from seed. Since pollination occurs from wind, corn seed should be sown in short, parallel rows or blocks.

Harvesting: Corn is ready about 3 weeks after the silks appear; harvest when the silks are brown, but not dried, and the husks are dark green; ears should be plump. Pull back the husk and pop a kernel with your thumb; a milky juice squirting out means corn is ready. If juice is watery, corn is still immature.

  • Days to Emerge: 5-10 days
  • Seed Depth: 1" - 1½"
  • Seed Spacing: 2 seeds every 12"
  • Row Spacing: 2' - 3'
  • Thinning: When 4" tall, thin to 1 every 12"
