Description

Organically grown seed of a famous old heirloom, a sweet and early traditional variety, with true corn flavour. Easy to grow, tolerant of poor soils.

Care Tips

Prefers a sunny, sheltered position with well-drained soil. Keep well-watered during hot, dry spells. Tall varieties or those planted in exposed sites may requite staking.
