Bodacious ears are large at 20cm (8") and very sweet and tender. The husk is an attractive dark-green colour and kernels are yellow. This variety is highly recommended for premium corn-on-the-cob or freezing.

Serendipity is a new bicolour with the very best characteristics of the super sweets: it is slow to get starchy after it is picked and it has the tender sweet kernels of the super sweet (sh2) types. Kernels run in 16-18 rows, on a slender 20cm (8") long cob, with a mid-green husk colour. The tender kernels probably cannot handle machine harvest so this variety can only be hand picked, for great taste at the roadside stand or your garden. A very tall plant, it holds the cobs up for easy picking.

Considered gifts to mankind by tribes of the First Nations, corn, beans, and squash have been grown together for centuries. Although the grouping is the subject of several legends, it's also an early and sophisticated variation on sustainable agriculture. The seeds of each type of vegetable, grown in single varieties, are easy to harvest and save from year to year. Corn provides a growing support for the beans, which in turn provide nitrogen for the corn and squash. The squash grow quickly, acting as a mulch against weeds. All three types of plant are heavy feeders, so grow this ancient combination in rich, well-drianed soil and add a small handful of complete organic fertilizer beneath each planting site. This collection contains seeds of Golden Bantam corn, Scarlet Runner Beans, and Red Kuri Squash.
Traditionally, flat mounds are made 30cm (12") high and 50cm (20") wide. Several corn seeds are planted near the centre of each mound. Once the corn is about 15cm (6") tall, bean and squash seeds are alternately planted around the edge of each mound. Remember that corn is wind-pollinated, so this system requires numerous corn plants.
