Corn, Who Gets Kissed Bi-Color Sweet (Zea mays), packet of 50 seeds, organic
Family: Grass (Poaceae)
Annual. 80 days to maturity, with a long harvest window.
A corn bred by organic growers that does best in organic gardens. This is a sugar-enhanced, bi-color sweet corn producing 7 to 8 inch ears with 14 to 16 rows of kernals on 5 to 6 foot tall plants. The corn is of excellent flavor and texture–very sweet. This variety shows vigorous growth in cold soils and gives excellent husk protection to the well-filled rows of seeds. Who Gets Kissed shows medium resistance to rust (Puccina sorghi) and Smut (Ustilago maydis). Corn prefers rich soil and full sun. Moderate water. Plant 1 to 2 inches deep and thin to 10 inches apart. Side dress with chicken manure after the plants attain 6 inches or so. Cultivate often to soften soil around plants and push the soil up around the stalks as they grow, to improve resistance to wind. After the plants reach knee high, you can cultivate and weed them one more time and then scatter crimson clover seed under them. This will cover the soil, feed the corn with nitrogen, and make it so you don’t have to weed again, all the way through to harvest.
