That's Delicious! Hybrid Sweet Corn (sh2)

A super-sweet corn with good disease tolerance! That's Delicious! Hybrid Sweet Corn produces 8 in. ears with extra juicy, tender and sweet kernels—and it holds its flavor and texture for over three weeks in the husks. Good for eating fresh, freezing and canning. An excellent choice for the home garden and local markets. Shows good tolerance to common rust, Stewart's wilt and Northern corn leaf blight. Plant corn seeds as soon as the soil temperatures warm to 60 degrees F. Because corn is wind-pollinated, plant in several short rows rather than a long one. Isolate from su, se and synergistic varieties by 300' or 3 weeks maturity. Approx. 200 seeds per pkt. 78 DAYS.
All Gurney's corn seed is now treated.
