Sugary Standard Whites

View Quick Facts Chart

This is the “standard” sweet corn you grew accustomed to from the 60’s through the 80’s. You’ve enjoyed its rich corn flavor and knew that the quality was best if picked and cooked “the same day”. Some varieties germinate quite well at 55° F. soil temperatures and quality is best if isolated from field corn, popcorn, ornamental corn and shrunken (sh) types. “Isolation” as used above can either mean at least 250 ft. apart, separated by an effective wind break, or 10 to 14 days difference in maturity because corn is wind pollinated.

The Harris Seeds company began catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who was extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
