SWEETCORN SWIFT F1 (30 Seeds per pack) 


Sweetcorn Swift is a first early, extra tender variety which produces heavy cobs of superb sweet flavour and texture, with approximately 14 to 16 rows of delicious golden kernels. As this is a super sweet variety, it will need much more moisture to ensure successful germination. It is an easy to grow extra tender and sweet variety and has better vigour than most others.

Sweet Corn is a tender vegetable that needs a good summer to produce at its best. Given a sheltered spot and using early varieties, this delicious vegetable is now quite at home in northern counties. Sweet Corn is at its most tasty when cooked as close to picking time as possible.


When to Sow Sweet Corn Swift Seeds

April to May

Where to Sow

Early sowings can be made into pots or modules under glass at 21°C. Later sowings can be made direct into growing site, sowing 2 seeds per sowing station. Do not sow as a single row, sow in blocks spacing as detailed below.

What to do Next

Pot raised sweetcorn seedlings should be gradually hardened off in a cold frame before transplanting into the plot once all risk of frost has passed. Do not plant in rows, but plant in blocks, spacing plants 45cm (18") apart each way to aid pollination by wind.

Late August to September

Handy Tip

Cobs are ready to harvest when the end tassels turn brown. Delicious eaten straight from the plant or cooked with a little melted butter.


Good source of vitamins A, B and C. Gluten-free and a good supply of fibre and protein.
