Reliable early cropper producing good sized sweet cobs. This variety is sturdier than most so well suited to more exposed sites than other corn 

Sow April to May. Sow 2 seeds per 9cm diameter pot and grow on in a greenhouse or sunny windowsill. Towards the end of May gradually hardened off in a cold frame before transplanting into the plot. Plant in blocks, spacing plants 45cm apart. Sweet corn is wind pollinated so need to be planted in blocks to aid the process  

Harvest August to September 

Cobs are ready to harvest when the end tassels turn brown.
