Zanadoo Sweet Corn
Delicious new introduction from organic farmer/breeder Jonathon Spero. An open pollinated bi-color sweet corn with good ear size, organic adaptation and real sweetness. About 82 days to maturity with mostly 14 rows of big deep kernels on 7 1/2" long, wide diameter cobs. Robust flavor, long husks give good ear protection. 2 ears per 6 1/2' tall plant. Selected to produce without high fertility levels and without coddling. 60 seeds
Be aware that the supersweet corns in the supermarket are hybrids. Open-pollinated "Heirloom" corns have a more complex flavor, not so sugary, and a shorter shelf life. For the best eating, watch the ears carefully. When the juice in the kernels is clear, the corn is not ready. When it gets milky, the corn is ready to eat. Pick while juice is milky, not yet pasty. Cook as fast as you can after picking. Yum.
