Early Sunglow is a hybrid variety of sweet corn favored by many home gardeners, particularly in regions with short seasons. It thrives in cool weather and is a good choice to plant early, as soon as the soil is workable and warmed to at least 70 F.
It can also be started indoors in containers and transplanted outdoors at an opportune time.
Timing your plantings correctly will allow for 2 plantings per season - one started in early spring for harvest in late spring or very early summer and one planted in early summer for harvest in very earl fall. Early Sunglow planted too late into the season tends to tassel prematurely and produces midget ears of corn.
The stalks are smaller than most varieties, only reaching 4 - 4 1/2 feet, even though the plant itself is short, the corn ears are a healthy 6.5 to 7 inches long.
Corn Should be planted in blocks as opposed to rows and should not be planted near other varieties of Corn [See - Isolating Sweet Corn.] as cross pollination tends to produce poor tasting starchy corn.
