Corn - Japonica Striped - Zea mays var. Japonica

Tender Annual Heirloom. Color galore from the leaves striped in hot pink, white, green, and yellow, to the purple tassels and burgundy kernels. Grow this one in the front yard. A Japanese heirloom from the 19th century. A dent corn that is good for grinding.

Soil & Water: Corn is a heavy feeder requiring high amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK). Its weak and shallow root system likes loose soil with a high compost content.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds directly outdoors 1 week after the last frost. You can start earlier by using black or green plastic mulches and floating row covers to obtain optimum conditions. Plant in blocks rather than rows to ensure good germination. To prevent cross-pollination, plant different varieties at least 500' apart.

Harvesting & Storage: For dry corn, harvest when husks are completely dry. To finish the drying process, husk the ears and spread them in a dry, well-ventilated area. Store kernels on the cob, or shuck and store kernels.

Did You Know? Japonica is the botanical Latin term for plants from Japan.
