Corn, Who Gets Kissed Bi-Color Sweet (Zea mays), packet of 50 seeds, organic

$3.95

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.

    Hey there,
    My corn is almost all atleast 6 inches tall now and I was going to add chicken manure like the seed packet recommends. Do you recommend composted chicken manure to prevent burn? Or do you think the straw/chicken manure straight from the coop will be okay to side dress onto the beds?

      Hi Sophia, Uncomposted manures actually can rob nitrogen as they decompose. I would suggest using composted manure as a side-dress. The fresh straw and chicken manure can be piled to compost, turn, and use later. There are commercially available composted chicken manure products (Stutzman’s) that work well and if used in moderation and worked into the soil around the plants will not burn and will help. Also getting on time to undersow with crimson clover. I’ll be doing that to my corn very soon. I grew Golden Bantam this year. The germination was just fantastic. Richo

      Thank you so much for the info! I like the idea of under-sowing the crimson clover, really trying to build soil in this first-year garden space! I have already interplanted with pole beans, but they shouldn’t mind the clover, right? I, also, had fantastic germination with the Painted Hills variety and pretty-darn-good with The Who Gets Kissed. Hardest part was choosing which to thin! Thanks again!
