67 days. Vigorous seedlings emerge early from cool soil. Yields large, 9-in. ears that produce kernels that are exceptionally plump and sweet.
All Henry Field's corn seed is now treated.
250-seed packet sows a 50-ft. row; 1/2 lb. sows a 200-ft. row.
After two consecutive years of failures with Silver Queen due to cooler than average Spring temps and soggy conditions in Virginia's mountains, I gave Northern Xtra-sweet a whirl last year. Good thing, because Mother Nature gave us another soggy wet and cool Spring, but this corn germinated nearly 100% in fifty degree sopping wet soil. Stocky 5 foot stalks produce 9 inch ears as promised, and the flavor and sweetness surpasses that of Silver Queen. Again this year, we had similar conditions, and it has once again germinated nearly 100%. Thanks, Henry Fields! This one's a keeper.
