80 to 90 days — 'True Gold' is an excellent late season sweet corn variety that delivers tender, sweet, rich, and deliciously flavored ears. The stalks grow six to eight feet in height producing two to three ears per stalk. The ears reach about eight to nine inches in length containing sixteen to twenty-four rows of golden-orange kernels. Tolerates cooler soil temperatures better than most corn varieties.
Although relatively long-standing, like most older varieties of corn, ears should be processed or eaten within a few hours of harvest to reap the fullest, sweetest flavor experience.
Laboriously de-hybridized and stabilized from the old, and very popular, F1-hybrid sweet corn variety called 'Golden Jubilee'. This work was done by Dr. Alan "Mushroom" Kapuler
and originally introduced by Peace Seeds of Corvallis, Oregon.
If you are one of the many gardeners who purchase and plant 'Golden Jubilee' every year and wish you could save your own seed, 'True Gold' is the open-pollinated option.
Our seed was grown by one of our Grower's Network members in Northeastern Washington State and whose original source was Seeds of Change. Approximately 65 seeds per 0.5 ounce.
