Corn, Early Xtra-Sweet Hybrid

Very sweet and very early.
Supersweet Hybrid (Sh2) corns can be twice as sweet as others and stay sweet for days if chilled promptly. For best taste, isolate from non-Sh kinds to stop cross-pollination. An All-America Selections winner, Early Xtra-Sweet is 2 weeks earlier than Illini Xtra Sweet. Its 9" ears have 12-16 rows of golden kernels. Height 6 ft. Ready to harvest in 71 days. GARDEN HINTS: Plant corn in blocks, at least four rows wide, for cross-pollination and well-filled ears. Grows best in full sun (at least 6 hours of direct sun per day). Cultivate carefully to avoid damaging surface roots.
