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\u003chow to=\"\" harvest=\"\" kandy=\"\" korn=\"\" ears=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost varieties of corn are ready to harvest about 75 days from sowing.

Kandy Korn is a Sugary Enhanced (se) crop that reliably produces 8\" ears lined with 16-20 rows, brimming from 8-foot tall burgundy stalks. As a Sugary Enhanced (se) variety, the Kandy Korn hybrid is the result of crossing the best and sweetest yellow cultivars, producing the golden buttery yellow Kandy Korn ears that are the closest thing to candy you're gonna harvest from the garden.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003ch3\u003eSugary Enhanced Sweet Corn (se)\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\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\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\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\n\n\u003c!--split--\u003e\u003c\/how\u003e","published_at":"2017-06-28T11:52:51-06:00","created_at":"2017-06-28T11:53:03-06:00","vendor":"Mountain Valley Seed Co.","type":"Vegetable Seeds","tags":["80-89 Days","Annual","Corn","Full Sun","Hybrid","Non-GMO","Packet","Seeds","veg_corn","Vegetable","Warmer","Yellow","Zone 4","Zone 5","Zone 6","Zone 7","Zone 8"],"price":379,"price_min":379,"price_max":42162,"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":39009515272,"title":"20g Pkg (4x5)","option1":"20g Pkg (4x5)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"18881","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":4648764964979,"product_id":9994015496,"position":1,"created_at":"2018-08-10T12:35:08-06:00","updated_at":"2020-11-06T08:48:24-07:00","alt":" Corn se Kandy Korn Hybrid Seed","width":700,"height":700,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2016\/2681\/products\/corn-kandy-corn-hybrid-seed-wm_700.jpg?v=1604677704","variant_ids":[39009514952,39009515080,39009515144,39009515272,39345607770227]},"available":true,"name":"Corn Seeds (se) -
