Description
Orchard Baby Certified Naturally Grown Seed
65 days — A very early, and quite unique and interesting variety of sweet corn for home gardeners. Bred by a Mr. Orchard of Canada, this variety was introduced by Oscar H. Will & Co. in their 1947 catalog. They continued to offer the variety until they went out of business in 1959.

The plants are short (three to five feet tall) and produce two small, five to six inch ears that have eight to ten rows of sweet, yellow kernels. The flavor is delicious - tender, not starchy, flavorful and just the right amount of sweet - not too overpoweringly sweet like modern super sweet varieties.  The plants commonly produce side shoots that provide additional, although usually smaller, ears.

Because 'Orchard Baby' corn is physically compact in size, it is an ideal candidate for folks who want to experiment with, or just have some fun, growing corn in containers.  It is also an perfect choice for folks with small vegetable gardens and those who live in areas that have short growing seasons.

Our source was the USDA's accession number PI 219872.  Each packet contains 0.5 ounce, which is approximately 80 seeds.

Rare and very limited supply.
