Black Corn

$6.50/25 seeds

A variety selected by Bob Reid from crops grown by indigenous farmers for centuries. Early/midseason 90 day corn which produces two to three cobs per plant, can tiller and have more in a good long Summer. A very sweet tasting variety which we have to include in our catalogue, the black colour makes this variety high in nutritional value. Sow in the open ground at 2 cm deep, cool regions about mid November after last frosts, soil temperature must be about 19 degrees C and air temperature warm at night, can be sown as late as early December. When plants are about 10cm tall, base dress each plant with about a quarter cup of COF, water the plants well throughout the Summer, harvest when the cobs are firm and full and tassles are turning dark brown, usually about end February or early March.
