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.

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F; ideally 65°–90°F.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended; roots sensitive to transplanting. Best results occur when seedlings are transplanted less than 2 weeks old.

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.

Best corn variety I've tried

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!

Fast growing corn with amazingly sweet taste

I grew peaches and cream sweet corn before growing this sugar baby variety. Not only did sugar baby sweet corn grow much more rapidly then the peaches and cream, it out performed it when it came to taste. Great corn variety for those with a short growing seasons.

First time trying corn in Texas. Planted 36 of these in a 5'x5' garden box. Perfect germination rate. Every plant grew a cob. About 75% ended up with good pollination. Some silks emerged a little late and missed the pollination window. Really tasty and lots of fun to grow! Companion planted with Trionfo Violetto pole beans which worked great!
