Sweet Corn Seeds - Balinese - Certified Organic

Sweet Corn Seeds - Balinese - Certified Organic

(Zea mays)

Balinese sweet corn is a strong grower to 3 metres, producing 2 good sized yellow cobs per plant. Harvest young for good flavour.

Corn is a heavy feeder of key nutrients in your soil, it is important to plant corn in very fertile soil with good moisture holding capacity. You can improve your soil by using compost, animal manures and fertilisers. Choose a full sun position and sow during the warmer months in Spring & Summer. 

Plants will set cobs between 70-90 days depending on the variety. For sweet corn varieties picking time is critical as the sweetness changes quickly. Once cobs have been set monitor the silk which is at the pointy end of the cob. Initially it will be very soft and a creamy green colour. As the cob matures the silk begins to brown on the outside, this is when you would start harvesting your first few cobs. If they are immature wait a little longer until they are just right.

Balinese sweet corn is an excellent sweet corn for eating fresh or cooked. Cooking in a fry pan with butter or on the BBQ creates the best flavour.

 

How To Sow

Sow seed direct into the garden by forming a furrow roughly 2cm deep. Sow a couple of seeds together then cover with 2cm of soil and keep moist until germinated. Thin out plants to the strongest seedling once they germinate. Space seeds 20cm apart and try to grow in blocks of at least 10 plants to improve pollination.
