Sweetcorn Pink Baby Fingers Seeds
Info: The Sweet Corn Pink Baby Fingers is a pretty variety that especially girls will love. The approximately 12 cm long, narrow cobs have a strong pink color. You can make a small, fluffy popcorn from the dried grains. If you grind the dried grains, you get a light pink flour.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow from May on outdoors. Use a dibber to make 2.5cm holes and sow two or three seeds every 30cm with 45 cm between rows. Sweetcorn grows best if planted in large blocks. It likes free-draining, moisture retentive and nutrient-rich soil. The plants are shallow rooted: protection from winds and water loss in the soil is very important.
