Here in TN, I grow Ambrosia… which is a bi color very tasty sweet corn.
I have tried other varieties (including incredible, peaches n cream) but found them to be somewhat flavorless compared to Ambrosia.
Below is description from Burpee…
Ambrosia isn’t just a name, it’s the perfect description for this white and yellow checkered sugar-enhanced sweet corn. The 8" long ears on 6 1/2’ tall plants are plump, sweet and ready for summer picnics.
And the 6 1/2’ tall description is pretty much what they do in my garden.
We often have mid summer very windy thunderstorms… and I have had my ambrosia blown over a few times in the past.
This past spring I was watching the Hoss Tools guy, showing how he fertilizes and “Hills” his sweet corn… he basically fertilized (side dressed) and then hilled… turning dirt from the space between the rows, up onto the base of the corn plants.
When my ambrosia was about a foot tall, I did that (using mostly blood meal for fertilizer)… and then 3-4 weeks later did that again… then 3-4 weeks later, again…
We had some rip roaring storms when my corn plants were full height, with tassels on… but with the nice accumulation of hilling at the base of the plants, none blew over.
PS… I plant mine on 30" row spacing and had excellent pollination, full to the tip ears.
I learned something new last year, that I will do from now on with my sweet corn planting… side dress fertilize and HILL. I not only had my best crop of ambrosia ever… but not one single stalk got blown over.
Below is a pic of some of the earlier ears, with some Big Beef tomatoes.
PS after my 3rd round of side dressing with fertilizer and hilling… I had accumulated 6-8" of soil up around the bottom of the corn plants. After harvesting, when I went to pull those plants for composting… they had 3 levels of roots developed… very bottom, mid and again just a bit higher. So each time I hilled, they put out more roots up higher on the stalk. That added a lot to the stability of the plant, and resisting those high winds and soaking rains.
