Sweet Corn

85 days — Very sweet and flavorful, the kernels of 'Midnight Snack' sweet corn are light colored at the fresh eating stage, but darken to a deep blue-black color at maturity and as it dries. The plants are five to six feet tall and bear seven inch long ears, containing fourteen to sixteen rows of kernels. It is a very productive variety as stalks can produce up to three ears each and tillers producing even more!

Developed by the late Dr. Elwyn M. Meader of the University of New Hampshire during his "retirement years" and was released in 1978. It is now fairly rare and in limited supply. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 125 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Soil must be at least 65ºF to germinate. Be patient and do not plant too early or you will waste a lot of seed! Plant in full sun and keep it watered. Corn is a wind-pollinated plant. Plant in blocks several rows wide to ensure full ears.

Sow seeds about 1½ to 2½ inch deep, 3 to 4 inches apart, in rows spaced 24 to 30 inches apart. Thin to 6 to 12 inches apart.
