Corn, Astronomy Domine

71% of 100

Early to mid-season (65 -70 days). This multi-colored sweet corn may be the most beautiful corn in the galaxy! Old-fashioned sweet corn flavor and a mix of vivid colors give this variety a burst of complex flavors and antioxidants on ears that will develop an amazing display of colors early at milk stage. This nutrient-dense strain was selected in the Great Basin of Utah by Joseph Lofthouse, from the original landrace created by Alan Bishop at his farm in southern Indiana. Bishop crossed several sweet corn cultivars and mass selected for color and flavor. This robust, easy-to grow-strain has a consistent early mid-season maturity, making it suitable for environments with a shorter growing season.
