Baby corn variety for fresh market pre pack and processing.
Early maturing approximately 75 - 85 days after planting. This will vary by as much as 10 days between winter and summer plantings. For accurate planning heat units should be monitored.
Plants are very uniform, reaching a height of 2.10m, with ears positioned 140 cm above the ground.
THAI GOLD has very high quality tender ears with excellent colour. Ears are extremely uniform that results in a very high pack out percentage.
Under marginal conditions a plant population of 60,000 – 80,000 plants/ha are planted to attain the required results. Under optimal conditions (well managed fields with adequate watering) a plant population of 55,000 plants are seen as ideal.
Baby corn can be grown under a range of climatic conditions. These conditions can vary from moderate, cool climates to more subtropical regions. It is important to note that even distribution of heat units is a key requirement for optimal production of corn.
