A mid-season variety that performs better in cooler conditions than many other varieties, Lark F1 is a great sweet corn for Northern European climates. It boasts an excellent, super sweet flavour and the plants are not too tall, making them perfect for the average size allotment.
[83 days] Growing sweet corn in Britain used to be quite a challenge, and getting a good crop was even trickier. Lucky for us, a new breed of modern F1 varieties has been bred for our cooler climates, and that in includes the Extra Tender Super Sweet (or Tendersweet) Lark F1.
This easy-to-germinate, mid-season sweet corn produces two or three golden yellow cobs per plant, roughly 20cm (8”) long. Deliciously sweet, the fruit from Lark sweet corn tend to be more pleasurable to eat and easier to digest than traditional “supersweet” varieties.
Unlike most hybrids, the Lark F1 can be planted alongside other varieties and doesn’t need to be isolated. (Sow with Earlybird and Wagtail varieties to eat corn all season long!)
Eat sweet corn fresh or boiled, steamed and/or barbecued the cobs for scrumptious treat. Height: 200cm (79”). Spread: 45cm (18”).
