CORN SUNNYVEE

Description
Sunnyvee Sweet Corn Seeds (‘SU’ Yellow Type) 1525 This is our best normal sugary variety for cool soil planting. Short, sturdy plants produce ears that average 18 cm (7 1/2″) long. An excellent variety for freezing. Irrigation essential.

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.
