Description

Corn - Country Gentleman - Zea mays

Tender Annual Heirloom. Country Gentleman is a standard late white corn, with narrow, small, nonrowing kernels on 7"-8" tapered ears. It is a heavy yielder, often growing more than one ear on a stalk. This is a great variety for the home garden.

Did You Know? Corn is rich in protein and contains many minerals.

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'.

Harvesting & Storage: Ripe corn usually has a small amount of green silk near the top with dry, brownish silk at the ends. Sugar content is highest in the morning.

Germination: 4-12 Days
Height At Maturity: 6'-8'
Days To Maturity: 90-100 Days
