SWEETCORN ORNAMENTAL FIESTA ~ one of a kind, a traditional Indian corn with multi coloured kernels (red, yellow, blue, purple and some are variegated. 20 seeds
SOW: inside from April to early May in deep pots, this variety needs an early start
GROW: harden off when about 15cm tall you may need to protect them if there is a cold spell. Plant them in a block with the plants and rows about 30-50 cm apart. Sweetcorn is wind pollinated. Shaking the top tassels to help pollinate the flowers below will help you to get a good crop
EAT: This variety is late to mature so look for ripe cobs later in September & into October when the juice from a kernel is ‘milky’. Cook as soon as possible after picking.
