Corn ‘Xtra Tender 20173’

Description

Super Sweet bicolor with great flavor. 7½-8″ long ears with 16-18 rows of sweet, tender kernels. Ears have good tip fill and husk cover, snap easily from the stalk, and have a long shelf life. Sweeter and more tender than Xtra-Tender 2573, which it replaces. 6′ plants. Intermediate resistance to common rust and Stewart’s wilt. 73 days.
Care: Plant 4-6″ apart in rows 24″ apart in full sun and rich fertile soil.  Corn is wind-pollinated and individual varieties should be planted in blocks of at least 4′ by 4′ for best ear formation..
