Sweetness Corn

Out of Stock
  • Sweetness corn is a type of corn that is bred to have a higher sugar content than other varieties. This results in a sweeter, more tender kernel that is popular for eating fresh, rather than being used for flour or other purposes. It's an early producer, making it great for gardeners who want to grow more corn varieties without worrying about cross pollination. Sweetness will mature sooner than most varieties. It can grow up to 5 feet tall and may produce two ears per stalk. Ears can grow up to 8 inches long. 


    Days to Maturity: 70 Days

    Seeds per pack: 30

    • Growing requirements: Sweet corn requires full sun, well-drained soil, and warm temperatures to grow successfully. It is a warm-season crop that is typically grown in the summer months. Seeds should be sown directly in the garden once the soil has warmed up and all danger of frost has passed.

    • Planting: Sweet corn should be planted in a location with good air circulation and plenty of space. Plant seeds in blocks rather than rows to encourage pollination. Space plants 12-15 inches (30-38 cm) apart in rows that are 24-36 inches (60-90 cm) apart.

    • Watering and fertilizing: Sweet corn requires regular watering and fertilizing to grow successfully. Water deeply once a week or more frequently during hot, dry weather. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season.

    • Pest and disease management: Sweet corn is susceptible to a variety of pests and diseases, including corn earworm, cutworms, and corn smut. Use insecticidal soap or other organic pest control methods to manage pests, and remove and destroy any plants that show signs of disease.

    • Harvesting: Sweet corn is typically ready to harvest 80 days after planting, depending on the variety. The ears should be harvested when the silk is brown and the kernels are plump and tender. Use a sharp knife or pruning shears to cut the ear from the stalk.
