Growing Instructions:

  1. Planting Time:
    • Warm Season Crop: Sweet corn thrives in warm temperatures. Plant seeds after the last frost date in spring when soil temperatures are consistently above 60°F (15°C).
  2. Soil and Location:
    • Soil: Prefers well-draining, fertile soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8. Enrich the soil with organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure.
    • Location: Choose a sunny spot that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
  3. Sowing Depth and Spacing:
    • Sowing Depth: Plant seeds about 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) deep.
    • Spacing: Space seeds 8-12 inches (20-30 cm) apart in rows spaced 30-36 inches (75-90 cm) apart. Ensure adequate spacing to allow for good air circulation and growth.
  4. Watering and Mulching:
    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Sweet corn requires regular watering, especially during dry spells and as the ears develop.
    • Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around the plants to retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and maintain even soil temperatures.
  5. Fertilization:
    • Pre-Planting: Incorporate a balanced fertilizer into the soil before planting.
    • Growing Season: Feed plants with a high-nitrogen fertilizer during the growing season to promote strong stalk and leaf growth. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application rates and timing.
  6. Care and Maintenance:
    • Weeding: Keep the area around the corn plants weed-free to reduce competition for nutrients and water.
    • Hilling: Hill soil up around the base of the plants to provide additional support as they grow taller.
    • Pest and Disease Control: Monitor for pests such as corn earworms, aphids, and cutworms. Use organic or chemical controls as necessary and follow integrated pest management practices to minimize damage.


  • Harvest sweet corn when the ears are filled and the kernels are in the “milk stage” (when a pierced kernel releases a milky liquid). This typically occurs about 18-24 days after silking (when the silks first appear on the ears).
  • To harvest, grasp the ear firmly, twist, and pull downward to break it from the stalk.
