Heirloom Peaches & Cream Corn Seeds

Corn is an American icon! A staple for Native Americans, quickly embraced by early settlers, Corn is easy to grow and fun to harvest and eat! White and yellow sweet corns are most commonly planted for home use and these sweet varieties require a lot of water! Make sure you plant your seeds in fertile soil, at least 1 inch deep once soil temperatures are at least 60-65 degrees in the spring. While traditionally and commercially planted in long rows, home gardeners may want to consider planting in a block, both to save space and increase pollination.

As delectable as the name implies, Heirloom Peaches and Cream Corn is sweet and fresh! Growing big, juicy ears and featuring pale, bi-colored kernels, Peaches & Cream is a top choice sweet corn.

  • Planting instructions for Corn

    Before Planting:

    Make sure the weather is warming up and your soil temperatures are at least 60 degrees--corn will not germinate if soil temperatures are too cold.

    Plant in full sun in highly fertile, well drained soil with a 6.0 to 6.8 pH. Sweet corn will prefer rich soil with high nitrogen and plenty of moisture. Soil should be amended prior to planting with aged manure or rich compost. The ideal spot to plant corn would be in the same plot that yielded a healthy bean or pea crop the year before--these crops contribute the needed nitrogen to the soil.

    Corn is wind pollinated and, especially for smaller plots, should be planted in blocks, rather than long rows.

    Seeds should be planted 2-3 per hole, about 1-2 inches deep. Plantings should be approximately 12-15 inches apart, and rows should be 30-36 inches apart. If more than one seed sprouts from a single planting, they should be thinned to the strongest sprout.

    Shorter varieties can be planted closer, and sweeter varieties should be planted shallower. Water plots well after planting and keep consistently moist through germination and harvest. As weather becomes warmer, increase watering. Most varieties of corn will produce suckers at the base of the stalk, but removing them has shown no benefit to the plant’s production, and can actually have a negative impact on yield.

    Corn should be fertilized with a nitrogen rich food when plants are about 12-18 inches high and weeds should be controlled so they do not steal moisture and nutrients from your crop. Sufficient moisture is crucial for plants to develop and produce properly.

    Corn will produce a fairly shallow root system, so care should be taken not to damage it when removing weeds. Weed control in corn plots is best achieved by a thick mulching, which also helps to maintain moisture.

    Ears will be ready to harvest approximately 3 weeks after silk is visible. To harvest, bend and pull ear downward from stalk with a twisting motion. Consume or freeze immediately for best quality.

    **Rule of thumb, the sweeter the corn, the more water it will need, and the warmer the soil temperatures must be.
