Avoid overhead watering by watering soil directly. To prevent cross-pollination from altering a corn crop, keep like varieties with like varieties (SU with SU, SE with SE, SH2 with SH2, and ORNAMENTAL with ORNAMENTAL). Check individual seed packet to know whether a variety is Sugary (SU), Sugary Enhanced (SE), Supersweet (SH2), or Ornamental.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHow to Harvest Ambrosia Hybrid Corn\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost varieties of corn are ready to harvest about 75 days from sowing.

Ambrosia Hybrid is a first generation hybrid grown to feature both yellow and white kernels with plenty of sweetness, ideal for grilling, canning, or freezing. Matures in about 79-84 days as 7-8 foot tall stalks and produces 7-8” ears with 12-14 rows per ear. Be sure to only plant Ambrosia Hybrid nearby other (su) varieties of corn to keep the varieties from cross-pollinating and spoiling each others' flavor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eSugary Enhanced Sweet Corn (se)\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e16-18% sugar content\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMedium productivity and harvest\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBest if enjoyed within 3-5 days\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost commercial and store-bought ears of corn are likely a type of sugary enhanced (se) because they boast a higher 16-18% sugar content which is directly responsible for their longer shelf life. While sugary enhanced (se) types still convert their sugars to bitter starch, the process takes several days longer than normal sugary (su) varieties simply because there is more sugar to convert. Sugary enhanced (se) corn is the resulting hybrid from preferred (su) and (se) types and sometimes is designated with a (se+) if both parents are sugary enhanced. Like most varieties of corn, sugary enhanced (se) generally is ready to harvest in about 90 days and can be started as late as 90 days from the first frost.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCheck out \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/learn.genetics.utah.edu\/content\/selection\/corn\/\" target=\"_blank\"\u003ethis article\u003c\/a\u003e about the evolution of corn.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2017-06-27T16:09:01-06:00","created_at":"2017-06-27T16:09:04-06:00","vendor":"Mountain Valley Seed Co.","type":"Vegetable Seeds","tags":["70-79 Days","Annual","Corn","Full Sun","Hybrid","Non-GMO","Packet","Seeds","Staff Favorite","Staff Favorite_web","USU Pick","veg_corn","Vegetable","Warmer","White","Yellow","Zone 4","Zone 5","Zone 6","Zone 7","Zone 8"],"price":269,"price_min":269,"price_max":44987,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":38926618120,"title":"10g Pkg (3x4)","option1":"10g Pkg (3x4)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"18591","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":4648608792691,"product_id":9985417096,"position":1,"created_at":"2018-08-10T12:19:41-06:00","updated_at":"2020-10-29T13:24:36-06:00","alt":"Corn (se) -
