Drying Corn Fiesta


This heirloom corn is a sight to behold, with kernels in dusky shades of yellow, red, black, purple and pink. Often thought of as purely ornamental they in fact make delicious popping corn or can be ground into cornmeal when fully dried. You can even try making the traditional Mexican hot drink atole.

Sowing info

Best started under cover in April in module trays, it is fast growing so don’t start too early. Sweetcorn needs a bit of warmth in the soil for germination, so if you’re starting in April, keep them on a windowsill or sunny greenhouse until they take off. Plant out only when all risk of frost has passed.

Growing info

Plant in ‘blocks’ or rectangle patterns to give the best chance of good pollination. The sweet flavour will be comprimised with cross polination with other corns so keep as much distance as possible from other varieties and sow 2 weeks apart so they flower at different times.

Sowing Months: February – May
Harvest Months: July – October
Position: Full sun
