846 – Rose Potpourri

$3.00$18.00

Certified Biodynamic and Organic

16 rows of kernels on full bodied 6-8 in. ears that range from rosy pink to deep burgundy as they mature. We’re still working on stabilizing this variety as there is a small percentage of white, yellow and bicolor ears, but all plants have had excellent full sweet ears of very fine quality. Developed by breeder Alan Kapular of Peace Seeds. We changed the name from Red Sweet Corn to Rose Potpourri since there are many hues of red.

PLANT HEIGHT
6-8′

PLANT SPACING
~12-16″ apart

HARDINESS ZONES
warm season crop

HARVEST
After ~70 days (or 16-22 days after silking), ears should have filled out their husks or at least started. Check an ear or two by peeling back the husk and looking to see if the kernels are developed. Not sure? Give a raw ear a bite – that will surely let you know! Corn doesn’t stay sweet on the stalk for long, harvest corn when it becomes mature and store in a cool place rather than leaving it on the stalk.

COMPANION PLANTING
Grows well with beans, both bush and pole as well as melons, pumpkins, and squash which will vine around the base of stalks. Growing beans, squash, and corn together is known as the Native American “Three Sisters” planting.
