One of the only sweet corns that can be grown in containers, the 3-foot-tall plants of this variety bear 3-6 ears of steel blue corn. The peak time for eating is when the kernels are just turning blue but can be eaten when white or steel blue. This is a great variety for small spaces and container gardens, and excellent when eaten fresh or turned into a creamed corn.


Growing Instructions

Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep, 4" apart after danger of frost has passed. Germination in 4-21 days.  For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows, 36-48" apart, instead of in one long row. Thin seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.
