Serendipity Corn Seeds

Harmonious Kernel Medley

Serendipity Corn, a relatively recent addition to the corn family, gained popularity for its unique blend of flavors and stunning visual appeal. Originating in the United States, this hybrid variety has quickly become a favorite among corn enthusiasts.

Serendipity Corn doesn't have distinct subspecies but stands out for its remarkable appearance. The plant grows to a moderate height, showcasing sturdy stalks and broad, dark green leaves. The ears display a striking combination of colors—ranging from shades of yellow, pink, and blue—that create a captivating and multicolored display on the cob.

Taste-wise, Serendipity Corn offers a delightful fusion of sweetness and complexity. Its kernels present a harmonious blend of flavors, combining the traditional sweetness of corn with subtle nuances that make each bite a delightful surprise. This hybrid is primarily intended for culinary use due to its enticing taste profile.

When planting from seed, Serendipity Corn thrives in well-draining, fertile soil with full sun exposure. Sow seeds directly into the ground once the soil temperature reaches around 60°F (15°C) or above, typically after the last frost date. Proper spacing between plants is crucial to promote healthy growth and optimal ear development.

Regular watering throughout the growing season, particularly during the critical pollination phase, plays a significant role in ensuring the development of flavorful and multicolored ears. Serendipity Corn's stunning appearance and delightful taste make it a popular choice for home gardeners seeking an exciting addition to their corn harvest.

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.
