CORN PEACHES & CREAM

Description
Peaches & Cream Sweet Corn Seeds (‘SE’ Bi-Colour Type) 1560 Sturdy 2 m (6′) tall plants produce the ultimate in bi-coloured sweet corn. Up to 16 rows of mouth watering, tender, juicy kernels fill the beautifully shaped 18 cm (7″) long ears. This is an excellent variety for home gardeners and commercial growers.

How to Grow
6 seed/gram When planting in rows, space the seed 10-15 cm (4-6″) apart, later thinning to 20-30 cm (8-12″) apart with the rows 55-75 cm (22-30″) apart. To ensure proper pollination, plant at least 3 to 4 rows. Corn can also be planted with 3 to 4 seeds per hill in hills spaced 30 cm (12″) apart. Plant 250 gr (1/2 lb) to a 30 m (100′) row; 4.5-6.8 kg (10-15 lbs) per acre. Work in a good general vegetable fertilizer at planting, keep weeds under control and the soil evenly watered through the season. Sowing Temperature Guidelines. Sow only when soils have warmed to 18 C. Some years this happens in mid May, other years we need to wait until late May or early June.
