Kandy Korn is a variety of sweet corn that is known for its unique, tri-colored appearance. The kernels on the ears of Kandy Korn are a mix of yellow, white, and orange. The variety is known for its sweet and tender kernels, and it’s often considered a delicacy.
Kandy Korn is a hybrid variety of sweet corn, which means it’s the result of breeding two different varieties of corn to create a new one. It is typically planted in the late spring or early summer and takes around 85-90 days to reach maturity. The plant grows tall, usually 6-8 feet tall, and has large ears.
To grow Kandy Korn, you will need to start by preparing your soil. Sweet corn prefers well-drained soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8. The seeds should be planted in a sunny location, in rows about 2-3 inches deep, about 8-12 inches apart. Water the seeds regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.
When the ears are fully mature, usually around 85-90 days, you can harvest them and enjoy their sweet, tender and colorful kernels.
It is worth noting that Kandy Korn is a very popular variety among sweet corn growers and it’s a great choice for those who want to add a bit of color to their sweet corn harvest.
