NZH A delightful sweet corn producing small tasty cobbs for summer BBQ’s and can also be dried for winter soups. Heritage sweet corns have a much fuller flavour than their modern counterparts which only seem to taste “sweet” This corn is sweeter than our other heritage sweet corns, but also very robust in flavor and nutrition. An early variety as the name suggests so ideal for shorter seasons, or possible to get two crops in a long season. Also, a smaller plant than most corns, so fits well in the home garden. Grows to 1.5m, Frost Tender.
Sow into trays in October in areas where there is frost, to 4cm diagonal spacing and keep in glasshouse . Transplant out to 25cm diagonal spacing in garden bed in November-December taking care to protect from frost. Or direct sow at 10-20cm spacing in October-November taking care to protect from frost. A heavy feeder, will require fertile soil.
