We have been planting Bodacious sweet corn for several years and have really enjoyed it. We recently got some Providence variety before our corn started to come on. It is really sweet and seems to stay sweet longer than other varieties. Has anyone planted Providence? Where did you get your seed? Thanks.

I've never heard of it; maybe it is not for our region. Most of the sweet corn here is G90...an I like it

An entry on google lists providence as a triple sweet and several companies selling it. I'll check my seed catalogs but not today. We grow serindepity, which is a triple sweet, for freezing but still prefer illini for fresh. Both triple sweet and supersweet (sh2) have good shelf life and I think the triple sweet holds longer in the garden. Vern
We like "How Sweet It Is" (sh2) white sweet corn. Never tried Providence.
All our sweet corn has been grown and either eaten or put up since early July. Glad I planted early this year, otherwise the drought would have nixed it for sure.

I've dealt with Harris, for over 40 years, without a problem, both home garden seeds, and commercial grower seeds.
I can't grow the supersweet varieties, as they are supposed to be isolated, from the SE and SU varieties, and there;s just too much corn pollen in the air, here. I grow white sweet corn, and frequently get yellow kernels, on some ears. The catalogs say 300 to 500 feet isolation, but that doesn't work here. Ed
