I have relatives in Estonia who haven't found a type of sweet corn they can grow due to a short growing season, as in southern Alaska, Canada, etc. If you have something I would like to order 5 or 10 lbs of seed for immediate shipment. Relatives are here, but leaving in a few weeks.

Burpee has these varieties of early corn listed on pages 64 and 65 of the 1998 catalog:
Early Choice-66 days-yellow
Northern Xtra Sweet-67 days-yellow
Early Sunglow-63 days-yellow-thrives in cool weather

Early Sunglow would probably do well in Estonia. Please be sure to have your relatives contact their country's equivalent of our department of agriculture, to see if there are any regulations regarding the importation of seed; also, you might contact the Customs offices of both countries to be sure they will be able to pass inspection on both ends of their flight.
