Bon Appétit Corn
Big and reliable. Growers love the consistent hybrid performance of Bon Appétit. Vigorous 61/2 foot plants produce large, blunt 7.5” ears filled with 16-18 rows of mouthwatering sweet bi-coloured kernels. Excellent eating quality. Maturity 71 days.
Corn is ready when the ears are completely filled and a pierced kernel shows a milky white liquid. A good sign of readiness is when the silk turns brown and crisp.
One of the most common questions we are asked is how to keep racoons out of a corn patch. Although nothing is foolproof, our most successful defence has been to install an electric fence around the corn patch with one wire about 4-6" from the ground and a second wire about 12" from ground level.
