Hooker’s Sweet (su)(70 days)

Zea mays

This variety is named after Ira Hooker who developed this short stature (4-6’), early maturing sweet corn to ripen successfully in the cloudy and rainy Olympic Peninsula of Washington state. Plants produce 2 ears of 7-8” long sweet corn with white and yellow kernels that begin to turn blue as it becomes over mature. Mature seed is a gray-blue. Flavor is rich, full and sweet with wonderful texture. We’ve adapted this over the past 20 years to have good cold soil emergence for early sowings. HEIRLOOM.

* Harvest when the kernels produce a milky white fluid, if it’s clear it’s too early, and if there is no fluid, it’s too late and they’ll be starchy (however good for roasting still).
