Needing Advice on Sweet Corn Varieties
My 2012 garden plans include a huge patch of sweet corn to freeze. My luck with sweet corn has been less than favorable and I could use some advice on the best varieties to grow. In the three times I tried, only one was successful and I can't recall the variety I grew that year, although I know it was a hybrid. Last year I grew an heirloom variety that produced tiny ears and very few of them. It seemed like a waste of time and effort for the little amount of corn I got. Two years ago I grew another heirloom variety that also grew it's own disease and I don't recall getting any ears out of that crop. Could I please, please get suggestions from my friends? Please post a comment on your successful sweet corn varieties.
