This Sweet Corn variety is a Non-Hybrid and Non-GMO variety. However, seeds are treated to keep them safe from pest/bugs and don’t look yellow.
Sweet Corn Growing Instructions & Care
Sweet corn can be sown in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Successive plantings are possible to extend the harvest until January in most areas in Australia.
Sow direct, 20mm-30mm deep in Spring or early Summer. Plant spacing is 30cm, and row spacing is 75cm. It needs full sun and moist soil. Frost tender plant matures in approx. 85-90 days, grows to 2m high.
Block planting improves pollination and provides well-filled cobs. Prepare the soil with compost and well-rotted manure. Count 18 days from when the silk appears and start checking for ripeness; the kernel should be milky.
Be aware that the Super sweet corns in the supermarket are hybrids. Open-pollinated "Heirloom" corns have a more complex flavour, not so sugary, and shorter shelf life. For the best eating, observe the cobs. When the juice in the kernels is clear, the corn is not ready. When it gets milky, the corn is ready to eat. Pick while the juice is milky, not yet pasty. Cook as fast as you can after picking.
These seeds are treated with Thiram. This is a seed protectant against attack by pre-emergence fungi on sowing. Do not eat the seeds or feed them to animals. It does not affect your crops or harm insects such as bees.
The seeds are strictly for propagation or growing in the garden only. The resultant crop is edible.
Fungicide treatment may be AQIS (Biosecurity, Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, Government of Australia) requirement for certain seeds varieties. If your packet has been treated, the seeds are dyed a distinct colour and have a label on the packet.
