New sweet corn
from traditional plant breeder Jonathan Spero at Lupine Knoll Farm in Oregon.
He has been working to bring a little more sweetness into open-pollinated sweet corn, and Tuxana is his work in progress. A customer told us that the Tuxana she got nice well-filled ears for the first time.
Big white kernels are sweeter than most open-pollinated corns, with good eating quality.
Productive, with 2 ears on each plant. Ears are 7-8" long and mostly 16-18 rows around. You may occasionally find a few other-than-white kernels.
BOTANICAL NAME: Zea mays
An early variety that can be ready by mid-summer. Does well in many soils, heavy feeder-use lots of compost. Good drainage and full sun important. Must be planted in a section at least 5 feet square for good cross-pollination. Sow seed 2 weeks after average date of last frost. Greedy feeder so fertilize well. Don't plant same place every year. .
