Corn is a warm season tender annual and requires nutrient-rich soil. Plant in well-drained fertile soil with a neutral to slightly acidic pH. Can tolerate clay soils. Fertilize the ground in spring with high-quality compost or organic fertilizer. Direct sow after soil has warmed to 65 degrees F and all danger of frost has passed. Optimal temperature for germination is 85 degrees F. For transplants, start indoors 4 weeks before last frost. Plant in blocks of at least 4 rows for adequate pollination. Feed with an organic fertilizer at 12″ or if leaves start yellowing.

Harvest when ear silks have dried, kernels are filled completely and have reached peak color. Corn is generally ready 18-24 days after the first silk has formed. For best quality, eat right away. Will hold well in the cooler temperatures and high humidity for 1-4 days.
