Gardeners who know their corn swear by this one. Producing large, plump ears with sparkling white kernels, Silver Queen corn always seems to taste just right - fresh, crisp, and sweet. Vigorous plants require warm soil. Plant twice three weeks apart if you want to extend your harvest. 70-90 days.
Plant Information
A native of the Mediterranean, it's unclear why this vegetable was assigned the adjective "Swiss" somewhere along the way. It's been prized by chefs for centuries because of how well it flavors rice dishes, soups, and other recipes. Home gardeners and cooks love it too. Not only is it easy to work with and uniquely flavorful, it's quite a looker as well. The large, dark green leaves have contrasting, deep red veins and stalks, bringing beautiful color to salads and dishes and whatever else you can cook up. Silver Beet chard is a tremendous source of all sorts of vitamins and can be harvested while young and tender for use in its raw form or later when mature as an excellent cooked vegetable. Planting once will create a continuous harvest, treating you to three or more crops per season.
