Mirage F1 Sweet Corn Seeds (Organic)

Golden Ears of Delight

Mirage F1 Sweet Corn, a special corn variety known for its origins, appealing appearance, and delicious taste. This type of corn, which belongs to the Zea mays family, has been developed through selective breeding and has a historical connection to traditional maize grown in the Americas for many years.

Mirage F1 Sweet Corn is not only pleasing to the taste buds but also to the eyes. The plants typically grow to a height of 5-6 feet, with rich, dark green leaves serving as a backdrop for the corn ears. These ears are covered in protective husks and contain rows of plump, golden kernels that gleam in the sunlight, making them a visually attractive addition to gardens.

In terms of flavor, Mirage F1 Sweet Corn truly stands out. Its kernels are exceptionally sweet and juicy, making it a preferred choice for those who appreciate a sugary burst of flavor in every bite.

Growing Mirage F1 Sweet Corn from seed requires specific conditions. It thrives in well-draining, fertile soil with a pH range between 6.0 and 6.8. Full sun is essential for its growth. To plant, simply sow the seeds directly in the garden after the last frost date, spacing them 9-12 inches apart in rows. Regular watering throughout the growing season ensures healthy growth and the development of sweet, plump kernels.

Harvesting Mirage F1 Sweet Corn is a satisfying experience. Wait until the kernels are fully formed and plump, and the husks have turned brown. Carefully peel back the husks to reveal the golden treasure inside. Harvest the ears promptly for the best taste and tenderness, and enjoy the culinary delights of this exceptional corn variety.

Planting & Care

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.
