Sweet Corn Vareties, What happened to yellow corn.

Looks like Peaches 'n Cream is all time favourite in my neck of the woods. I find it too sweet and watery myself. I'd like to sink my teeth into the meatier varieties we used to able to get.

I say "used to" as I can't find any yellow varieties along the roadside anymore. My b inlaw
and myself are going to try a few acres each for roadside selling next year. Trouble is I can't remember the names. Used to be one variety that had a cob a few inches longer than the Bantam. The 5inch Bantam is too small for a worthwhile yield but I may have to go that way.

Anyone know some northern varieties that are available in the Vermont area.?

I've had success with Iochief, and the family likes the taste. It is an old-time sweet corn with a lot of "corn" taste not merely sugar. And it grows well here in mid-Atlantic anyway...not sure about up your way.

I don't know if it would be available in Vermont, but here in Iowa we go to an Earl May store or outlet and get what is called Iowa Chief sweet corn seed, nice big ears with bright yellow very meaty kernals.

Before I surrendered to the coons and bears, I used to love that Kandy Korn. Burgundy is another good one. I'm sure there's plenty of varieties. Just check a seed catalog.

Golden Cross Bantam was one of the first hybrid sweet corn varieties and was popular for decades before the newer SE and SH2 varieties started appearing.

I was gonna try that    Posted 08-28-2003 at 13:15:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
this year, but the rains came early and stayed late and I didn't plant any corn.

hopefully it'll still be viable next year.
