Rainbow Sweet is a true sweet corn, not an ornamental corn. The stout 5 foot stalks set one or two 6-8 inch long ears with tight husks. You will see a wonderful variety of colors, from blue and red to purple, white, and yellow. The ears hold well in the garden and have that great old-time texture and flavor.
Pick when the kernels fill out to the tip of the ear, then watch for the white kernels to turn gold while cooking and it will be perfect for eating. There is no finer summer treat! Ready in about 75 days from planting with excellent cold-soil vigor and germination. A packet contains enough seed for a 12x12 foot block.
