Corn, Super Sweet ‘Polaris’ F1 (Zea mays)
Polaris cobs grow to 20cm long and are sweet and juicy. The plant can make 180-200cm tall and provides good disease resistance to ensure a bumper crop. A terrific 'honey and cream' variety to use instead of Samurai.
Please note: Polaris is provided as an excellent alternative to Samurai.

Where to sow: Direct
Depth to sow: 2cm
Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.

Directions: Super sweet corn must be planted away from other varieties of corn or they will develop tough starchy kernels. I plant 2 seeds per station 25cm apart in rows 60cm apart in blocks of 4 rows to ensure full cobs. I plant four crops at fortnightly or so intervals from early November until early January.
