Corn on the cob is one of the best, and most highly anticipated summer treats. Homegrown corn has amazing flavor and tenderness, so much better than what you find in the grocery stores. A perfect blend of luscious, white, and yellow kernels just bursting with flavor, this corn will be a hit at your next barbeque. Each 7" bicolor ear has about 12 rows of sweet, creamy kernels. 'Honey and Cream' cans and freezes well, too—savor summer all year! Disease resistant.

Harvest when the silks are brown, but not dried, and the husks are dark green; ears should be plump, and rounded rather than pointed at the tip. To test for ripeness, gently pull back the husk and pop a kernel; the liquid should be whitish; if it is still clear, ears are not quite ready.

Honey and Cream Corn

I was a bit disappointed. I found the corn to be a bit starchy. I don't know if it was the variety or because it was so hot and dry here in Inland So Cal. I'll try a different variety next year.

Owner Response: Hi Valerie, It sounds like the harvest was a little past ripe which causes the sugars to turn to starches. There are tips to know when to harvest on this product page under the growing tab or in the article in the learn more tab in case it is helpful.

Not the sweetest corn, but still very good

These corn cobs are beautiful, but not as sweet as I would have liked.

Owner Response: Hi Alex, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Enjoying your ears of corn as soon as possible after harvest will ensure the sweetest experience! Sugars quickly convert to starch, making the freshest corn the sweetest and most tender! Storing ears in cool temperatures will slow sugar loss. Harvesting time may also influence the sweetness of your corn - harvest when silks are brown, but not dried, and when the husks are dark green. I hope this helps! Thank you for choosing Botanical Interests.
