Detailed Product Info

We were smitten when these darling dwarf plants were growing in our 2013 trials, and enamoured when the peeled back the husk revealed steel blue kernels...but the flavor is really what won us over. This corn is hands down one of the best open-pollinated sweet corns we have tasted! The kernels turn from white to steel blue when at the peak eating stage, and turn a bit greener when cooked. Each plant yields about 2 ears. A great variety for small spaces and container gardens. Due to the small plant size, the ears are about half the size of an ear of standard sweet corn.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, until mid-summer. Sow corn seeds directly 3-4 inches apart, in rows spaced 36 inches apart in blocks of at least 4 rows to insure proper pollination for kernel formation. Thin plants to indicated spacing if necessary. Corn requires fertile soil and little attention. Water during dry periods. Harvest when ears are full and kernels are swollen and milky. Take care not to let ears over-ripen.

Will Plant Again! Review by Ohio Gardener
Plants started up very nicely, poking through the soil in 4 days! Sadly, we were hit with a drought in my part of the state, and many of the stalks didn't survive. I managed to pull off 3 wonderful ears before deer took the rest. Now my kids normally don't go for corn, but they loved this sweet corn! And the ears are perfectly sized for smaller appetites. I will definitely be buying more seed and trying again next year! (Posted on 8/18/16)
Great container vegetable, great taste, great conversation piece Review by The Other Mrs. Cepero
I am an urban gardener and due to concerns regarding the soil, I grow most of my vegetables and fruit in containers. This will be my third year growing this wonderful variety of corn in containers. The taste is enjoyable and the conversations surrounding its looks is an added feature. Most people do not think it is edible until they taste it, then they realize the color is not what is important. (Posted on 2/17/14)
