Sweetcorn Honeydew Improved F1 Hybrid Seeds

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2884
  • Pack Contents: 50x Sweetcorn Seeds
  • F1 hybrid vigour
  • Bred for intense sweetness
  • Perfect height for an average-sized plot

A very high quality second generation Extra Tender sweetcorn type with large cobs that offer a superb flavour. So tender you can eat them raw - straight from the plant!

This 'Extra Tender' variety is a really robust, late-season variety that gives you lots of harvest from July, just in time for the barbecue season. Its increased cob-hardiness makes then stand up to damage when harvesting and tugging off the cobs.

Honeydew Improved is suitable for the chilliest of UK locations- great news for Northern home-growers and it performs better in cooler climates than other sweet corns.

Enjoy growing these plants, reaching an appropriate height for an average vegetable plot. Every plant is able to produce two or even maybe three well-sized super-sweet cobs.
