Seed Exchange - 'Fisher's Earliest' was cultivated by Ken Fisher of Belgrade, Montana who worked for 60+ years selecting for the short growing season there. Vigorous, multi-colored 5-6' stalks with one ear per plant sitting 18" high. Ears grow 10-12 rows of kernels; excellent tip fill and husk cover. All ears should be picked and eaten quickly as ears lose sweetness rapidly post-harvest.
Tender, sweet kernels
Ideal for freezing and fresh eating
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors 1” deep after danger of frost has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin seedlings to 8” apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained, fertile soil with plenty of water.
