5 Tips How to Grow a Ton of Sweetcorn in One Raised Bed

Corn is more American than apple pie and has been grown in North American gardens for more than 4,000 years. Although it takes up much of the garden space, many gardeners make room for the sweet taste of freshly cut ears.

The sugar in the cob kernels of sweet corn varieties begins to turn into starch almost as soon as the cobs are harvested. However, breeders have developed dozens of new and increasingly sweet cultivars that retain their sugar content for days.

If sweetness is your main goal, choose varieties listed as super sweet (abbreviated as sh2 in seed catalogs), but keep in mind that they may not be as vigorous as other types of sweet corn. If you prefer the good cheesy taste, choose the standard (su) varieties.

For a compromise between sweetness and vigor, choose varieties with sugar. If you like to experiment with the latest innovations, try planting a synergistic variety. These varieties produce cobs with a combination of sugary beans and super sweet beans on each cob.

If you don't have a lot of space in the garden, you can also try growing sweet corn in a single bed with this amazing technique shown in the video below.
