Corn


As one of the most widely grown grains on the planet, it’s hard to know where to begin when talking about corn. Originally from the Tehuacan region of what is now Mexico, corn, or maize, has been cultivated widely in the Americas since 2500 B.C.E. For most of its cultivation, humans have utilized hundreds of different varieties. However, over the last century, only a few varieties have been promoted, many of which are Genetically Modified varieties. But not to worry, you can help to change all of that! Mountain Valley seeds carries both heirloom and hybrid corn varieties, all of which are non-GMO! Some favorites include the succulent Serendipity, the bicolor Ambrosia, or the heirloom Golden Bantam 8 and 12. Mountain Valley Seeds proudly offers a wide line of corn seeds from smaller quantities to bulk. Wholesale pricing.

Sweet garden corn needs a bit of space, good rich soil and many days to develop but after those many hot days of care they reward us with the sweet corn crunch that is a staple of picnics and barbeques. Garden seed for sweet corn comes in varieties of yellow ( such as ‘Jubilee’), white ( such as ‘Silver Queen’) and bi color corn kernels( such as ‘Peaches and Cream’). Days to harvest on the different garden corn varieties vary from 65-85 days. One of the earliest being ‘Precocious’.

Legend indicates that Indians grew corn by burying a fish with the seeds. This would be a good idea because corn is a heavy feeder of nitrogen and soil preparation is important to the success of your garden corn crop. Mixing a good deal of compost and manure will help give the corn seeds a good start. Direct sow the corn seeds in the prepared soil after the danger of frost is past. Planting a second crop of corn two to three weeks later will extend the harvest. Corn seeds planted in warmer soil will grow more vigorously. For best taste plan to cook and eat your corn quickly after harvesting it as the sugars break down into starches very fast.

Good companion plants for corn are melons, cucumbers and pumpkins because not only do they share space but the slightly prickly leaves and vines are said to deter animals that would share your corn crop. Peas and beans are a good crop to rotate with corn as they will fix the nitrogen in the soil after the heavy feeding of the corn plants.
