Corn - Sweet   Cossack Pineapple   Cucumber  
Corn - Sweet
Zea Mays
Sweet corn can be sown in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Successive plantings are possible to extend the harvest until January in most areas. Sow all year in the tropics. Suitable for temperate, subtropical and tropical areas. Direct sow in full sun, 2 - 4 cm deep, space 20 - 30 cm apart in rows 60 - 90 cm apart. Block planting improves pollination and gives well-filled cobs. Prepare soil with compost and well-rotted manure. Once the first node on the stem shows root nodulation, hill the plants up to 25 - 30 cm deep. Count 18 days from when the silk appears and start checking for ripeness, the kernel should be milky.

Sweet Corn 'Bicolor' UT

Large cobs of supersweet corn, with an attractive colour contrast of cream and gold kernels; produces 2 cobs per plant, disease resistant. This is untreated hybrid seed with a high germination. This is an F1 hybrid so is not suitable for seed saving.

Sweet Corn 'Max' UT
No SA / TAS / Norfolk Island
'Max' produces large cobs of golden corn on a hardy and rust resistant plant. A 'supersweet' (Sh2) supermarket hybrid, it contains about twice the amount of sugar of older varieties. It is also slower to convert sugar to starch, so retains its sweetness longer. It should be grown at a different time to other sweet corn as cross-pollination will reduce its sweetness. This is untreated hybrid seed with a high germination. Height of plant: 196 cm. This is an F1 hybrid so is not suitable for seed saving. Days to harvest: 85.

Thank you very much for your excellent service... I should also tell you that this summer's crop of "Legacy" corn, which we grew from your seeds, is tall and strong with beautiful sweet cobs. We will be back to purchase from you again and have also recommended you to our friends.

Cossack Pineapple UT
Physalis pruinosa
syn. Ground Cherry
A true heirloom vegetable, recorded as early as 1837. It is a warm season, frost tender perennial, a close relative of the tomatillo and Cape gooseberry with a sweet, pineapple like flavour. It can be grown as an annual in cooler areas.
It is easy to grow with a low, sprawling, bushy habit to 50 cm high. Wait for the ripe fruit to fall to the ground, the fruit will be blueberry-sized, golden yellow and the papery husk tan-coloured at maturity.
It should not be eaten green. Use it fresh or cooked in pies, jams, salsas and desserts. It is prone to pest problems in the subtropics and grows best with an exclusion cover. Sow it in spring, it germinates best at 21 - 27°C soil temperature. Days to harvest: 77.

Cossack Pineapple plants are available seasonally.

Cucumber
Cucumis sativus
Sow cucumbers direct after all danger of frost has passed; in tropical areas sow during the dry season. Suitable for temperate, subtropical and tropical areas. Sow 10-20 mm deep and 50 cm apart if on a trellis, 1m apart if planted into raised mounds. Growing on a trellis reduces fungal problems spraying regularly with seaweed also helps. Prepare soil with compost and well-rotted manure; cucumbers dislike acidity and needs frequent watering. Pinch out the terminal bud to encourage branching. Harvest cucumbers daily with 2 cm of stem to reduce water loss and improve storage of the fruit. Information for growers regarding cucumber pollination requirements.
Cucumber 'Giant Russian' H UT
syn. 'Gympie Gold'
This is an excellent variety for humid areas, although of course, it will grow anywhere a cucumber does. The vines are vigorous and best treated as a climber. The fruits are very large, crisp, sweet and acid-free and change to golden as they ripen. It has the advantage of keeping for several months. Hardy and much more resistant to mildew than Lebanese cucumbers. After growing both for many years we have concluded that there is no difference except name between 'Gympie Gold' and 'Giant Russian' cucumber but we are happy to be told differently.
