Description

This incredible multi-coloured variety was developed from traditional Indian corn and produces long cobs with kernels of yellow, red, black, purple, pink, even marbled! The corn grows to of a height of between 1.5m and 2.0m. The cobs are often used for decorative purposes but the kernels are completely edible if you want a change from uniform cobs. In fact this makes great pop corn. Just brush the cob with butter and put the cob in a microwaveable dish with cling film on top into the microwave.

Sowing Advice

Sowing advice: Sow the seeds indoors in seed cells early spring or outdoors in May and early June, one seed per square foot, 1" deep. Transplant the seedlings outside in a block when about 8" tall and all risk of frost has passed in your area. Sweetcorn plants need a rich, well drained soil. Keep watering in hot, dry spells, especially when flowering. Grow in isolation form other sweetcorn varieties to avoid cross-pollination.
