Summertime and corn on the cob go together. Nothing tastes better than just-picked sweet corn! 'Sugarbaby' is a bicolor corn that matures in 65 days—an advantage in areas with a shorter growing season. Flavorful, 8" ears with 12–16 rows of very tender kernels hold their sweetness and flavor longer than other varieties. Good cool weather endurance.

Harvesting: Corn is ready about 3 weeks after the silks appear. 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.

So I have grown sweet corn for the last 6 years and have never had a bountiful harvest, but these seeds did the best. I have tried several seed varieties and even buying plants from my local greenhouse, but these seeds did the best when I tried them in 2017 so I am buying again for 2020!
