Sugar Pearl is an early producing hybrid white sweet corn. As the name suggests it is pearly white and sugary sweet.
Stalks attain a height of about 5 to 6 feet and yield ears of 7 - 7.5 inch pearly white sweet corn. It is a relatively trouble free variety of corn suitable for gardeners with short growing seasons. It germinates in cooler soil than many other cultivars, soil temperatures as low as 55 F.
Sugar Pearl retains its flavor longer than most varieties, up to two weeks from maturity before the flavor begins to wane. It is best harvested when kernels are completely formed, which is roughly 20 days after the first strands of silk appear.
It takes 70 - 75 days to mature.
Corn Should be planted in blocks as opposed to rows and should not be planted near other varieties of Corn [See - Isolating Corn.] as cross pollination tends to produce poor tasting starchy corn. Sugar Pearl, as per some suppliers does not need to be isolated as other varieties do - this is just fine for the Sugar Pearl, but not neccesarily the other variety.
