Special sugar-enhancer endosperm means great-tasting, oh-so-sweet corn!
72 days. We believe that Sugar Buns is simply the yummiest early sweet corn you can grow! We were bowled over in our trials — nothing tasted sweeter, thanks to this hybrid’s special homozygous sugar-enhancer endosperm. (What was that again?) Simply put, you’ll get great-tasting corn that stays fresher longer — no more racing to eat up or give away the harvest before it spoils! Plants reach just over 5 feet tall, producing beautiful 7-inch ears with 14 rows of sweet, tasty yellow kernels.
Sugar-enhanced corn is creamier and more tender than Super Sweet, with stronger old-fashioned corn flavor, yet is sweeter than regular Sweet hybrids. This delicious variety retains its sweetness for up to 10 days after harvest. No isolation from other corn is necessary, and germination is easier than with Super Sweets.
Sow after last spring frost, when the soil is warm. Corn is famously easy to direct-sow in any sunny spot. To extend your corn harvest, make successive plantings weekly up to mid-July, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates. Pkt is 200 seeds.
