CN380A - Sugar Buns
Sugar Buns is the earliest sugary enhanced (SE) variety with the longest harvest period of any early corn. Sugar Buns remains tender for a good two weeks on the plants, allowing for a long harvest window. This corn is delightfully tender with a rich, creamy sweetness packed in fourteen rows of tender, yellow kernels on a slim, 19cm (7") ear. Two ears grow on each sturdy, 1.5-2m (5-5') plant. Sugar Buns freezes well. Like all other SE hybrids, be sure not to plant our untreated Sugar Buns corn seeds until the soil temperature is 17°C (64°F) or warmer. This corn has intermediate resistance to northern corn leaf blight and Stewart's Wilt. It is best grown above the 38th parallel.

How To Grow
These big plants will grow in almost any soil, but getting the cob to mature is another matter. The maturity of the ears (cobs) is not controlled by the size of the plant, nor by day-length, but by the accumulated heat the plant has had while it grew. They call this the “heat units”. Only temperatures above 50 F count after the last killing frost of spring. Temperatures above 50 F add up to create the heat units. Corn plants generally grow very tall, and will shade other vegetables. Some plants will benefit from this shade, such as lettuce, but heat-loving plants must be placed so that the corn does not shade them. This heavy-feeding plant also provides a stalk for plants such as Pole Beans. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Corn from seeds Guide and grow food.
