CORN, Krispy King

Krispy King produces truly gourmet, crisp, yellow corn that measures about 8″ (20 cm) long. The deliciously sweet kernels have outstanding quality, superb taste, and good shelf life. Ears have a tight protective husk and snap off easily from the stalk. To ensure proper pollination, plant at least 4 plants in a square pattern. Krispy King has excellent cool soil tolerance and benefits from the addition of manure.
