Description

A Sugar Enhanced Corn with Great Disease Resistance!

Earlier than Silver Queen and every bit as delicious!

82 days from direct-sowing.

This year, why not grow the Royal Family of sweet corn -- Silver King, Silver Queen, and Golden Queen? You'll have great eating all season from these classic varieties!

Silver King, a Sugar Enhanced (S. E.) type, is the earliest of the royal family to mature, with slightly larger ears than its Queen -- 16 to 18 tightly packed rows of snowy kernels pack every ear of this succulent hybrid! Stuffed with succulent, sweet flavor and a nice crunch, they are absolutely irresistible. You can enjoy them fresh off the plant, too!

The stalks reach 6 to 7 feet high and are wonderfully resilient, tolerating Rust, Stewart's Wilt, and Northern Corn Leaf Blight. This is a variety that has stood the test of time and is still a favorite among discerning gardeners and diners everywhere. New varieties may come and go, but Silver King remains a beloved favorite, and a great choice for new gardeners thanks to its superior disease resistance.

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!

The BEST corn you will eat!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have grown this variety for several years. It is very easy to grow, excellent yields, and it is the BEST corn you will ever taste, yellow or white variety! I cannot grow enough of it to keep everyone happy!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I've shared this with many people, we all agree, it's the best tasting corn we've ever eaten. And the plants are the most disease and mildew resistant in my arid Utah mountain climate.
