How to sow and care for Red Strawberry Corn Seeds
Red Strawberry Corn can be started indoors and transplanted outside if it does well in a sunny location with well-draining soil and full sunlight. The seed should be sown at a depth of four times the size of the seed between 50cm and 1m apart. Sowing every two weeks until early spring will ensure a regular supply. Germination of Red Strawberry Corn takes 7 to 10 days. It is not a good idea to plant ten days to two weeks after the last killing frost. They can also be potted indoors at any time of the year.
Despite its ability to grow in fertile, well-drained soil, it is not resistant to cold or heat. By fertilizing your Strawberry Corn plants with a high-nitrogen fertilizer, you can increase your harvest. It may take up to three weeks after silking for red strawberry corn to be ready for harvest once the silks have dried. Wind pollinates strawberry corn. The best way to plant is to plant four or more short, side-by-side rows rather than one or two long rows. Pollination will be easier. You can improve the results by watering regularly.
