Sweet Corn Seeds - Illusion F1

An F1 Hybrid sweetcorn that is just as sweet and tender as ‘Super Sweet’ varieties!

Sweet Corn Seeds - Illusion F1 is a brilliant sweet corn variety that benefits from the vigour of the F1 hybrid! Illusion F1 is a synergistic variety, meaning the kernels are even more tender than the super sweet varieties but just as sweet! With excellent cool weather vigour, this variety of sweet corn is far more reliable being grown in the UK climate.

Producing white cobs (with odd yellow kernel) and excellent ‘tip fill’ meaning Sweet Corn - Illusion F1 produces better, fuller cobs that grow to lengths of 19– 20cm. Ready to harvest August–September with established plants growing to a height of 151–200cm (59–79") and a spread of 41–50cm (16–20").

Growing Sweet Corn - Illusion F1 from seed

Sweet corn prefers to be sown in a sheltered, sunny position and protected from the wind. Use well-drained, rich soil. 

For best results sow in a propagator on a windowsill or one seed per 5cm pot in a greenhouse at approximately 18-21°C using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 2.5cm of compost (germination 7–14 days).
