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. Tightly-packed, white and yellow kernels. Some tolerance to Stewart’s wilt. Plants and husks have a reddish-green color. Good cool weather endurance.

This 10 gram packet sows up to 24 feet.

Days to Maturity: 65 days

Type: Sugary enhanced (se)

Days to Emerge: 5–10 days

Seed Depth: 1″–1 ½”

Seed Spacing: A group of 2 seeds every 12″

Row Spacing: 24″–36″

Thinning: When 4″ tall, thin to 1 every 12″

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.
