Sweetcorn – F1 Lark


Sweetcorn Lark F1 is a tender sweet variety that is very sweet with a thin skinned juicy kernel about 21cm in length. A mid-season variety with excellent cold soil performance. Great plucked and used straight from the garden, a different taste to the shop bought varieties.

SKU: N/A Category:


Latin Name – Zea mays var. saccharata

Sowing Instructions – Indoor – 1 seed into 8cm pot filled with moist compost at a temperature of 13C. They are not keen on root disturbance so transplant very carefully. Harden off seedlings during the day for 3/4 days before planting outside.

Outdoor – Sow 2 seeds at one station 2.5cm deep in early summer at 40 cm intervals in a rectangular block (helps to aid pollination). Remove the weaker seedling. In cold weather and particularly in the north cover the seed with a cloche to keep them warm and germinate better. Water well.

Hints and Tips – Earth up stems in summer to give better anchorage. Keep well watered and top dress soil with organic matter periodically.

Seeds – Approx 40
