We’ve come a long way, baby, when talking sweet corn. Corn tasters agree that Ambrosia Sweet corn, with butter and sugar kernels, is the finest sweet corn around. Ambrosia will have you jumping out of your seat reaching for another ear. An enhanced hybrid, it is aptly named as the food of the gods, and we think you’ll agree. Hybrid.
Summertime just wouldn't be the same without the taste, the enjoyment, the experience of sweet corn. And Ambrosia is the variety that will consistently earn the praise of everyone around the table, and in the garden. Defined as "something very pleasing to taste and smell," Ambrosia is a perfect name for this beautiful, bi-color corn. An earlier variety than most, it produces stalks about 6-7 feet tall, bearing ears that are an impressive 8 inches in length with 16 rows of kernels. Like most corn, Ambrosia is wind pollinated, so you'll want to plant it in a block of shorter rows instead of one long row. Select a sunny spot that's at least 10x10 feet, making sure it's on a side that won't block the sun from other plants when the corn stalks get tall. Ambrosia corn is ready to harvest when you notice the silks have turned brown and the ears feel firm. For best flavor and texture, pick, cook, and eat your corn the same day. You can also freeze it right on the cob if you want to save some for later.
