75-80 days. From the garden to the pot, 'True Gold' will transform any plate to a luxurious meal! Large, 9" ears are very sweet and tender on this old-fashioned corn like your grandparents grew. Plants are resistant to stalk-lodging; stalks are less likely to bend and kink in windy areas.

This packet sows up to 25 ft.

1" - 1½"

A group of 2 seeds every 12"

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F; ideally 65°‒90°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Special sowing instructions: Since pollination occurs by wind, corn should be sown in short, parallel rows or blocks.

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. Pull back the husk and pop a kernel with your thumb; a milky juice squirting out means corn is ready. If juice is watery, corn is still immature.
