HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Prepare the soil with compost or other organic matter. One week after frost or when the soil consistently reaches 60 degrees F, plant the corn 1" deep and 8-12" apart. Planting blocks of four short rows ensures good pollination. Germination should take place in 5-6 days. For companion planting benefits, plant Bodacious Hybrid yellow sweet corn seeds with cucumbers, peas, or pole beans; plants that like shade also do well with corn. Avoid planting tomatoes near corn.

Growing: After the corn emerges, keep it moist and carefully remove weeds; since corn cannot fight against weeds, mulch may be beneficial. Additional organic matter or compost helps growth, since corn is a heavy feeder. Keep in mind that corn has shallow roots which can easily become damaged by hoeing. Watch out for pests, as corn attracts many problematic insects and animals.

Harvesting: About three weeks after the corn silk appears, it will begin to turn brown; this signals that the corn is nearly ripe. When the kernels of sweet corn release a milky substance when pierced, they are ready to be harvested. If the substance is clear, they are not ready; if nothing comes out of the kernel, the optimum time for harvest has passed. Sweet corn usually tastes sweetest if picked in the morning, since sugar content peaks at this time; for best taste, use it the same day it is picked.

Seed Saving: Because this variety of corn is a hybrid, the seed it produces will either be sterile or will revert to the characteristics to one of the parent seeds; reproducing this type from its own seed will not be successful.

Fantastic promptness and quality!

My corn had failed miserably thru 3 plantings because of the wet, cool weather this spring here in southern W.V. Bodacious corn arrived in my mailbox on Wednesday 6/24/20. I planted it on Thursday 6/25/20. It was up on Monday 6/29/20! I'm 62 and been gardening all my life and have never experienced anything like that! At least 90% germination too! Thanks so much. Will definitely be ordering from you guys in the future.

corn seed

I love the packaging-it is very pretty and different. the corn we planted is up now. Had a little delay because of cold weather. the seed looked excellent. This Bodacious is the only kind I want to plant and could not get it where we live this year. Last year, the green house had to order it; this year they couldn't get it from their usual places. the shipping was fast from you also. Really satisfied with ordering from you. Janice Holen

Bodacious hybrid yellow sweet corn seed

Good Afternoon,
We ordered your seeds last year and loved them so we ordered them again.
The bodacious corn is our favorite, it is sweet and has a good amount of corn on the cob. We do like to experiment with different kinds of corn but for us this one is the very best.
We ordered on your website and it was sent right over, not a long wait.
We love your company and will continue to order from you.
Thank you so much!

DESCRIPTION

SE-ho Type Sweet Corn. Bodacious is a great home garden or roadside market variety that will keep you coming back for more! This corn variety has impressively big ears that are jam-packed with beautiful sweet yellow kernels. Best of all, Bodacious stays tender over a longer period than many corn varieties, so you have a longer harvest window to enjoy it. It also ripens in just 75 days and has reliable rust tolerance.
Though historical records differ, it seems that the first sweet corn was obtained at the beginning of the 19th century; the Indians provided early settlers of the northeastern United States with this valuable commodity. In 1825, Thorburn's seed catalog offered the first cultivated variety of sweet corn for sale.
