Trucker's Favorite Yellow
Dent Corn

75 to 120 days — 'Trucker's Favorite Yellow' is an old standard dent variety that grow to about eight to ten feet tall, and produce eight to ten inch long ears that have between fourteen and eighteen rows of tender, relatively sweet yellow kernels. Although it can be grown nearly anywhere with a long enough corn growing season, it is particularly well-suited for the Southern United States.

As with most field corn varieties, 'Trucker's Favorite Yellow' is best picked in early milk stage (about 75 days) for eating fresh as roasting or frying corn. Some folks prefer its flavor over 'Trucker's Favorite White'. It can also be left on the stalks to mature and dry for use as animal feed, or ground for corn meal and flour. Each ounce is approximately 150 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.
