Buttergold Corn is a sweet tender and delicious corn  that keeps well. The sugar enhanced ears have long keeping quality and are good for freezing. It can be planted earlier than other varieties. Sow seeds 1” deep and 10“ apart in rows 30” wide.  It's ready to harvest after 63 days with 7-8" ears growing on plants that are 5-6' tall. Easy to grow and a great choice for new gardeners,

Corn seeds can be planted directly into the garden soil.

Sow seed directly into the warm garden soil in late spring to early summer. 

Plant seeds 1” deep and 10" apart in rows that are 30" wide. They should come up in 7-10 days depending on the soil temperature and grow quickly in warm weather. Buttergold has exceptional cold soil emergence and early maturity and that means you'll be harvesting the 7-8" ears of tender, butter-gold kernels ahead of other varieties.

Corn is wind-pollinated so plant them together in a block. These plants are heavy feeders on available soil nutrients. If organic compost or manure wasn't worked into the soil last fall. they will need additional compost added during the growing season. 

Each packet contains 25 Corn - Buttergold Seeds. Zea mays. Annual. Non-GMO. Begin harvesting in 63 days. $3.00

This packet plants 4 rows 6' long for a total of 12 plants.

Sweet Corn is Delicious

Ears of corn are edible and delicious when grilled or prepared in many other ways while still on the cob. When the kernels are removed from the cob they can be made into salsa, soup, fritters, succotash, and cornbread. Corn can be made into flour, cornmeal, corn syrup, and corn oil, ethanol, and whiskey. 

Features.

Corn plants are tall and sturdy and will provide shade for other vegetables in the garden. They create a great opportunity to plant and grow lettuce and spinach and other plants that will bolt in the full heat of the sun. Planting corn can also provide a living trellis for other crops in the garden like peas. Don't plant corn next to tomatoes.

Benefits.

Sweet corn is mainly composed of carbs and fairly high in fiber. It has a small amount of protein. It is a good source of antioxidant carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin, and yellow corn may promote eye health. Corn is also a rich source of many vitamins and minerals. It can be a food supplement for animals.

More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting corn can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.
