Description

I grow this excellent, tried and tested, mid-season 'super sweet' variety with a good yield of long, uniform cobs.

It's also a very ornamental plant, which looks good with tall, luscious, grass-like leaves, in any part of the garden.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

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.
