Gotta Have It® Hybrid Sweet Corn

One taste and friends and family will be asking—"Where'd you get it? I've gotta have it!" A customer favorite since its introduction in 2007, Gotta Have It has tender bicolor kernels that are packed to the brim with rich, oh-so-sweet flavor. It also allows you to enjoy that fresh-picked flavor longer—Gotta Have It has an amazingly long shelf life—3+ weeks in its husk in the refrigerator! The superb flavor holds up for a wide range of maturity; it's very slow to become starchy so you have a longer window of harvest. Fantastic for freezing—tastes like freshly picked sweet corn in the dead of winter. Shorter-than-average plants are as strong as field corn and hold their own against the elements and disease to yield 7-8 inch long ears that are filled to the tips with succulent, sweeter-than-sugar kernels. Can be planted with other sh2 varieties. For best germination, be sure the soil is warm before planting.

All Gurney's corn seed is now treated.
