Corn, Sweet, Organic (Painted Hill)
Botanical Interest Brand
Frost sensitive 65-80 days
This colorful, open-pollinated corn was developed from a cross of the heirloom sweet corn, 'Luther Hill', and 'Painted Mountain' flour (Indian) corn. Because 'Painted Mountain' was selected from the Rocky Mountains, 'Painted Hill' is adapted for short growing seasons and can germinate better than others in cool, wet soils. The 7", multi-colored ears make a beautiful display, and every kernel is filled with robust, old-time corn flavor. Color is pale when fresh but intensifies when dried. This packet sows up to 19ft.
When to sow outside: Recommended;
1-2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60*F, ideally 65*F - 90*F
When to start inside: Not Recommended;
Roots sensitive for transplanting. Best results occur when seedlings are transplanted less than 2 weeks old.
