Corn Sweet Bodacious (yellow) Seeds

Zea mays var rugosa (hybrid)

Item #0018

75 days. Bodacious! That's what you'll say when you've tried this corn! Very high quality flavor and sweetness that holds for days after picking. Its wide adaptability in northern latitudes, early maturity and consistent performance has made it the most popular variety in its class. So much better home grown than store bought!

This packet sows four 6-foot rows.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures are warm (60 - 65°F).

When to start inside: Not recommended; corn seed does not transplant well.

Special sowing instructions: Easy to grow from seed. Since pollination occurs from wind, corn seed 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.
