Direct sow planting, warm season crop


8 Row Flint (Polenta)

Sowing the Seeds

Sow 3 to 4 inches apart and 1 inch deep.  Sow at least 4 rows in an area to allow the corn to pollinate and form kernels.  36” spacing between rows.


Wait until the plants reach 4 inches tall and then thin to 8 inches apart.


Each plant will produce 1 cob.  The size of the corn at maturity is debatable but harvest once the husk has lost its green colour.  Shuck the cob leaving the leaves attached to the cob and hang to dry before using the corn.
