Description

Long 8 inch ears have great staying power on the stalk

Days to Maturity: 79 from direct sowing

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2001

Long, elegant 8 inch ears are packed with remarkable crunchy-sweet kernels on this All-America Selection winner. One of an entirely new type of corn called TripleSweet, Honey Select hybrid combines the crunchy texture of sugary-enhanced types with the extra sweetness and great holding ability of the supersweets. The result? Delicious!

TripleSweet corn actually contains 2 kernel types, selected and reselected to create an ear that is 75% sugary-enhanced and 25% supersweet. Ideal for home gardens, it needs no isolation from other corn, and has great staying power on the stalk.

Honey Select hybrid was applauded by the AAS judges both for taste and ease of growth. These plump golden kernels are the best-tasting you will find, and they keep so well, you don't have to harvest them all at once. Taste, texture, and hold, that's the TripleSweet advantage.

Direct sow corn seeds after the last spring frost, when the soil has warmed. Corn is famously easy to grow in any sunny spot, but be sure to plant it outdoors—it doesn't transplant well. To extend your corn harvest, make successive sowings weekly up until mid-July, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates. Consider growing a Three Sisters planting as well—corn, beans, and squash planted together all help each other grow and produce their best, as the Native Americans knew centuries ago.

Corn seed in packet sizes of 1 lb. or smaller is now available for shipment to Canada!

Great Tasting Corn

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I started growing this variety 3 years ago and have had excellent results in Western NC. The corn stands well and has resisted several large windstorms. I freeze this corn as well as eat fresh and it is my favorite. I wait until the end of May to plant it and get very good germination.

Very Sweet

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I'm currently splitting my 3 plantings between Incredible, Serendipity, and Honey Select. They are all great germinating, strong varieties. All freeze well. Honey Select seems to me the one that freezes the best. It remains very sweet. We froze in early September 2017 are finishing up now and the Honey Select STILL has outstanding flavor.

One of sweetest

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I am in northeast Indiana and wait until late May and early June to plant super sweets because the germination is better for me. We've planted Incredible, Serendipity, and Honey Select the last two years. All are outstanding. Honey Select freezes extremely well. I had 90% + germination and very nice ears.

The best corn ever.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

With super sweet corn I have a difficult time to get it to germinate. No problems with this. I planted this and my old time favorite Honey and Pearl. The Honey and Pearl went untouched as this stuff was the best tasting corn I've ever grown. Planning next years garden now and will be planting only this variety but will planting much more.
