About This Product

You'll love this extra-early, yellow corn's classic sweet corn flavor and texture. Early Sunglow's cold weather vigor makes it ideal for the first planting of the season. It's ready to pick in 63-days, yielding two 6 to 7 ears with 12 rows of kernels on 5 ft. to 6 ft. plants. For better ear fill, plant a number of short rows together instead of a single long row, this helps insure pollination.

  • Germination rates exceed USDA standards
  • Grow from seed and save

    Q:When is the best time to plant these?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Depends on your gardening zone. Although this tolerates cool temps and some frost, it needs 60 degree soil temp or near that to germinate. In my zone 8b east Texas garden, I sprout some indoors and plant out March 1st, then do staggered direct sow plantings every two weeks through May 1st. I also plant again in September. This grows quickly only needing 62 days after germination. It is a heavy feeder and moderate water needs.

      A:  Thank you for your question. Pending on the climate zone you are located in you will want to sow directly into the garden after your last average frost date or when all chances of frost has passed. Also all corn seed is best planted when the soil temperature is 60 degree's of higher. If not they will stay dormant until and if that time is too long the seed will end up rotting in the soil and not grow. Hope this helps and our best to you this gardening season.

          A:  No, it is one of the earliest highbred sweet corns. I have been planting it for decades, long before GMOs came about.

                This is one of my all-time favorite corns. I have been planting it every year for decades. This corn grows fast on shorter stalks, and I plant in ground and in containers. It is so tender and sweet (without the forever-crisp texture or sickeningly-sweet watery taste of many of the newer corn varieties) that I often pick an ear and eat raw right in the garden. Ears are usually two per stalk and smallish, but worth it. Even if you let it go too long on the stalk, it still tastes good, just a little chewy in texture. In my east Texas zone 8b garden, I sprout some indoors for planting out the first of March, as this will tolerate cool temps and some frost. Then do staggered plantings thru May 1st. I also plant again in September. Don't know what the other reviewer is talking about. I have never had a problem with this corn or seeds purchased from Home Depot/Ferry-Morse. In fact a couple of years ago, I found some 10-year-old seeds of this corn tucked away in a closet, and still had good germination and production!!! Of course it's all about good soil, compost, water and timing.

                  Not a good product. Never produces anything. Second year trying to grow Ferry-Morse's products with never any results. This product needs to be taken off every shelf of Home Depot and every other marketing facility that sells it.
