CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Thoughtful corn breeding has resulted in this highly alluring new variety, the first organic synergistic hybrid available to home growers. Allure Organic corn seeds germinate well in cooler soils, producing highly vigorous seedlings. The plants reach 2.1m (7') by mid-season, setting ears at 70cm (27") from the ground. The bi-colour ears are slender, but very well filled, all the way to the tip at 20cm (8") long. The kernels are very sweet with rich flavour and appealing texture that pops when bitten. Best of all, the ears have very good holding ability and a decent post-harvest shelf life. High resistance to common rust, intermediate resistance to Stewart's bacterial wilt.
Matures in 75 days. (Hybrid SY seeds)
These big plants will grow in almost any soil, but getting the cob to mature is another matter. The maturity of the ears (cobs) is not controlled by the size of the plant, nor by day-length, but by the accumulated heat the plant has had while it grew. They call this the “heat units”. Only temperatures above 50 F count after the last killing frost of spring. Temperatures above 50 F add up to create the heat units. Corn plants generally grow very tall, and will shade other vegetables. Some plants will benefit from this shade, such as lettuce, but heat-loving plants must be placed so that the corn does not shade them. This heavy-feeding plant also provides a stalk for plants such as Pole Beans. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Corn from seeds Guide and grow food.
