82 Days. Providence F1 SH2 (Bi-Color) TripleSweet® bicolor sweet corn. Providence sweet corn has a superb eating quality that is suited for roadside and farm market sales. 6-1/2′ plants hold the ear at 24″ and have intermediate resistance to common rust. Refined 8″ ears have 14 – 18 rows of bicolor kernels and good tip fill. The husk package is medium green with moderate flags and covers the tip well. Treated Seed.
PLANTING; After soil has warmed up to 65F ( 70-75F for SH2 & SH2SL ) till soil fine and loose. Enrich with compost or fertilizer, as corn is a heavy feeder. Direct seed seeds, 1-1.5″ deep, 5-10″ apart on a row spacing of 30-36″ apart. For best results,
plant in blocks of 3-4 rows, instead of 1 long row. Isolate different corn varieties by a distance of 100-150′ or by maturity. Keep
soil moist and weed free.
Use 3-18-18 starter plant food when planting and a side dress with nitrogen when about a foot tall. HARVEST; When kernels
are full, but still in the milky stage, pick ears from plants. Husk and use fresh, can, dry or freeze for later use.
You will need 1/4 LB per 100′ of row, or about 10 pounds per acre.
F1 Hybrid. Possesses superior vigor and yielding qualities. You can not save seeds from hybrids
as hybrid seed has to be crossed from pure parent lines each time to get the same results.
SH2 Shrunken 2. 35-45% sugar contend, crisp and a high seed count per pound of seed. Needs
isolation and extra warm soil, 70F or above or seed will rot before germinating.
