The Q&A Archives: Best Corn For Southern California

Question: I want to know what corn grows best in Garden Grove, California.
Last year I planted 3 different varieties and none of them did well.

Sunset magazine had an article a few years ago that listed the best varieties, but I lost it.

Answer: Don't let one year of disappointing corn production keep you from planting again! Weather can have a great deal to do with the success of your harvest. Some popular supersweet hybrids, such as "Kandy Korn," "How Sweet It Is" and "Super Sweet" are sugar-enhanced and well suited to growing in your area. More traditional varieties include "Silver Queen" and "Golden Jubilee."
