Product Description
Double Delicious offers outstanding flavor, germination and vigor, making it our most popular sugary enhanced (se) sweet corn. This fast-growing variety produces 9-inch golden ears packed with juicy, yellow kernels with rich corn flavor. Its stalks don't grow quite as large as other varieties, making it a good choice in smaller gardens. Double Delicious has excellent germination in cold soils and yields 10 dozen ears per 100-foot row. Sow the seeds in the garden once the soil temperatures have reached or exceeded 60 degrees, approximately 2 weeks after the last hard frost. For best results, plant in blocks of 4 or more rows and keep Double Delicious isolated from sh2 and su sweet corn varieties. Zones 3-9. 83 days to maturity.
