That's Delicious! Hybrid Sweet Corn

That's Delicious! Hybrid Sweet Corn

78 days. "Tender and unbelievably sweet;" "Pops off the cob;" "Full of flavor, crisp and juicy," were just some of the comments from our staff upon tasting our new sweet corn. But when someone exclaimed "That's delicious!" we knew that's what we had to call it.

If perfection can grow on a cob, this is it! Tender-crisp kernels melt in your mouth with unimaginable sweetness that still has that rich old-fashioned corn flavor.

Holds Flavors and Textures Longer

This new generation of sweet corn has been bred to hold flavor and texture for over three weeks in its husks in the refrigerator. It's also extremely slow to turn starchy so you have a longer time to harvest than ever before. That's Delicious! is excellent for freezing—it will hold its scrumptious flavor so you can enjoy it in the middle of winter. The husks offer excellent protection for the 8-in. bicolor ears and stalks are as tough as field corn, ensuring you excellent harvests to share with appreciative family and perhaps some very lucky neighbors. We know you will enjoy That's Delicious! every bit as much as we do—and can't wait until you have a chance to try it for yourself. Enjoy! Isolate from su, se and synergistic-type corn by 250-300 ft. or at least 3 weeks maturity time—can be grown with any sh2 varieties. For best germination be sure that soil is warm before planting.
