Corn 'True Gold' Organic
Traditional, open pollinated corn is getting harder to find as sweeter hybrids become more popular. Don't be deterred - this is corn as it should be - crisp, buttery and true corn flavour.
Corn demands a rich, well prepared soil with a neutral pH. Corn is greedy for nutrients, so plant after a crop of peas or broad beans. Sow directly into th ebed once risk of any frost has passed. Sow corn in blocks rather than rows to aid pollination. If you grow only a few plants, shake the male flower at the top of the plant to release pollen onto the silk, which is part of the female flowers to improve pollination. Mulch well. Harvest corn when the kernals give out a milky substance when pierced, the fluid will be watery if not yet ripe.
