Ambrosia Hybrid Corn Seeds



Early and vigorous, with good tolerance of Stewart's Wilt.

Plump, juicy, and as delectable as its name!

75 days. Named for its delectable taste, Ambrosia is as beautiful to see as it is to eat. The 8-inch-long ears are bursting with about 16 rows of jam-packed kernels in a checkerboard pattern of white and yellow. Measuring 2 inches across, the ears are large and very full -- the kernels are plump, juicy, and savory-sweet. Plants grow 6 1/2 feet tall, reaching their height earlier in the season than most. Good tolerance of Stewart's Wilt.

Sugar-enhanced corn is creamier and more tender than Super Sweet, with stronger old-fashioned corn flavor, yet is sweeter than regular Sweet hybrids. This delicious variety retains its sweetness for up to 10 days after harvest. No isolation from other corn is necessary, and germination is easier than with Super Sweets.

Sow after last spring frost, when the soil is warm. Corn is famously easy to direct-sow in any sunny spot. To extend your corn harvest, make successive plantings weekly up to mid-July, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates. Pkt is 200 seeds. Corn seed in packet sizes of 1 lb. or smaller is now available for shipment to Canada.

our favorite for years

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

We have been using this delicious corn for many, many years. We love to share it with others and always hear "That's the best corn we've ever tasted". It freezes very well. Ambrosia is the only corn we plant.

5 star corn for sure!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Simply put, this is the best tasting corn I've ever eaten. I had always been devoted to Silver Queen until I grew Ambrosia at the urging of a farmer friend. I'm soooooo glad that I took my friend's advice. Wow! One bite of Ambrosia and I feel as those I've died and gone to heaven. I urge everybody to give Ambrosia a trial in their gardens. You will thank me later. :)

Delicious corn!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Have always planted silver queen and 2 years ago planted Ambrosia and Silver Queen. The Ambrosia was much sweeter...It freezes well and stays sweet throughout the winter (I cut kernels from the cob before freezing and my rule of thumb is 2 cobs of cut kernels is about 1 cup of corn). This year I will only plant Ambrosia...
