Product Overview - Organic Sweet Corn Seeds by Bombay Seeds 

Bombay Seeds brings you high-quality organic sweetcorn seeds, derived from a type of cereal plant belonging to the grass family, which is closely related to grain corn. Our sweetcorn seeds produce crops rich in glucose, which does not swiftly convert to starch due to unique recessive genes. These seeds are ideal for both corn seeds for farming and corn seeds for planting, ensuring a robust yield. It is essential to separate these crops from regular maize to prevent any unwanted cross-pollination.

Planting and Growing Guide

How to Sow Sweetcorn Seeds

For optimal growth, sweetcorn seeds should be sown in a warm climate post-frost. Bombay Seeds recommends using grow bags for initial planting. Start by planting eight to ten seeds in grow bags that are four inches wide, half an inch deep. Keeping the soil moist is crucial for germination. Transition plants outdoors gradually to acclimate them before permanent outdoor planting.

Care for Growing Sweet Corn

Our sweetcorn seeds are open pollinated. For pollination efficiency, space them in block formations rather than long rows. Upon planting, intertwine them with sprawling squashes to help suppress weeds and optimize space. Regular weeding and watering are essential, especially during tasseling and cob formation. Apply a balanced fertilizer when plants are about 2 feet tall to enhance growth and yield.

How to harvest Sweet Corn

Cobs are ready for harvest when the tassels darken. Use the fingernail test for maturity: press a kernel, and if it releases a creamy liquid, it's ready. If the liquid is watery, allow more time.

Precautions

Avoid deep hoeing to prevent damaging surface roots. Ensure consistent soil moisture, especially during dry spells.

Bombay Seeds ensures that these sweetcorn seeds for planting and seed corn farming are of the highest quality, providing you with a reliable and productive crop. Whether you are a seasoned farmer or a gardening enthusiast, our sweetcorn seeds are designed to meet your agricultural needs efficiently.
