Swift F1 Sweetcorn Seeds

[83 days] If you’re a new gardener and want to try your hand at sweet corn, then the Swift F1 is the variety for you. Super easy to grow and extra sweet, Swift sweet corn is an early-producing plant with a dwarf habit ideal for the standard-sized garden plot or allotment.

It germinates quickly and has incredible vigor, producing 2-3 cobs per plant, each roughly 18cm (7½”) with 16-18 rows of bright yellow tender sweet kernels apiece. Unlike most hybrids, the Swift F1 can be planted alongside other varieties of corn and doesn’t need to be isolated. (Sow with Lark F1 and Wagtail varieties to eat corn all season long!)

The flavour is rich and incredibly sugar-sweet. Delicious raw or cooked!
