Corn, Super Sweet ‘Polaris’ F1 (Zea mays)

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.

 

 

When to sow: Early November - early January
Where to sow: Direct
Depth to sow: 2cm
Aspect:  Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil:  Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add   lime if soil is too acid.
Spacing: Between plants: 25cm; Between rows: 60cm
      

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.
