Botanical Interests Organic SugarPearl Sweet White Corn
These sugary sparkling white kernels have melt in your mouth flavor! SugarPearl is a Tablesweet ® variety that is sweeter and holds its sweetness longer than most other sweet corn. If you love white corn, nothing beats its flavor and snow white color! Bred and grown on the Western Slope of Colorado, SugarPearl is a sugary-enhanced (se) sweet corn that holds its flavor longer than other varieties and matures in just 73 days. No need to get the pot boiling before you go out and pick! SugarPearl holds its sweetness for a few days after harvesting. Make room in your garden for this one – you can't buy it fresh in any grocery store!
When to plant outside: Spring, a week or two after average last frost, and when soil is warm (60-65 degrees).
When to start inside: Corn seed does not transplant well. Sowing directly outside is recommended.
Special Sowing & Germination Instructions: Corn is easy to grow from seed. For best results, provide optimal germination conditions in your garden including ½" planting depth and warm soil. Since pollination occurs from wind, seed should be planted in blocks. Sow 6" apart and thin to 1' apart. This (se) variety should be separated from field corn, popcorn, and SH² (super sweet) varieties by 250 feet to prevent cross-pollination. Staggering plantings with a 10-15 plus day maturity difference will allow closer plantings where cross-pollination is a concern.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
