Sweet Corn - Early Extra Sweet F1

Sweet Corn is a tender vegetable that needs a good summer to produce at its best. Given a sheltered spot and using early varieties, this delicious vegetable is now quite at home in northern counties. Early extra sweet is a super sweet variety with shrunken kernels which means this variety will need much more moisture to ensure successful germination. This type produces 20cm long cobs filled with fine flavoured kernels which matures from September onwards.

Sow indoors in April to May in 8cm pots using good quality seed sowing compost at 18-21°C. Keep compost moist at all times but do not overwater. Sow direct in May into growing site, 2 seeds per station spacing 45cm between plants in a block formation. Thin to strongest seedling. Module or peat pot raised seedlings should be transplanted when all chance of frost has passed. Do not sow in rows but in blocks 45cm square to aid the pollination by wind. Ready to harvest from July onwards. The cobs are ready when the tassels turn brown.
