Corn 'Minigold' 35-49 Seeds (Zea mays) Vegetable Heirloom

Very sweet, productive variety produces small, slender cobs that can be harvested and consumed even before they fully ripen. Plants reach 180-220cm tall. Cone-shaped cobs posses tiny, sweet grains and can be harvested when they reach length of 10 to 12 cm. They can be eaten cooked or as a tasty addition to salads, meat and Asian dishes. They are also great for preserves, i.e. marinades as they fit whole into jars. Delicious, appetizing cobs are harvested from August to September.
