SWEET CORN Balinese – 15+ Heirloom Seeds (NOT to WA)


Balinese is a heirloom sweet corn growing to 2m tall and producing two small cobs per plant. Corn cobs have pale yellow kernels with excellent flavor.


The plant likes warmth. The plants are 200cm high. Eat when young and still yellow. Balinese Sweet corn is a heirloom open pollinated sweet corn that originated from America.


It is grown in Australia and this is not a hybrid or GMO variety. And for that matter, rest assured that certain, your home-grown heirloom, non-hybrid corn will be way nicer and have richer flavor than anything you can get at the supermarkets!


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 gives well-filled cobs. Prepare 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 flavor, not so sugary, and a shorter shelf life. For the best eating, watch the cobs carefully. 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 juice is milky, not yet pasty. Cook as fast as you can after picking.
