Bi-colour SY / Veseys Top PickExcellent eating quality. Big cobs and even bigger flavour makes Montauk a real winner. Up to 18 rows of fine, juicy kernels are filled with exceptional sweetness. Large 8-8½" cobs fill right up to their blunt tips. This hybrid produces tall, strong plants that pick easily. Matures in 79 days.
Synergistic (SY): This type combines the sweet creamy flavour of the SE types with the higher sugar content and longer harvest window of the SH2 types to produce exceptionally good corn. Each cob contains about 25% SH2 kernels and 75% SE kernels. These synergistic types are much less sensitive to cold soil than SH2 varieties and do not need to be isolated from SE and SU varieties.
- Corn Tip
- 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.
