Harvesting - How To Harvest Pearls and Gold Corn
Plan harvest in early morning or in the evening.
If harvesting it for sweet, or milk stage, wait until corn silk is dark brown all the way to the husk.
If harvesting for seed or full maturity, allow corn to dry on stalk, seed corn is most optimal when ears and husk are completely dry and starting to point downwards. (note that this is a hybrid type corn. Hybrid is not the same thing as GMO. Hybridization occurs when two separate varieties are crossed to breed a new hybrid variety. Almost all varieties began as hybrids before they stabilize and become an open pollinated variety. You can try to save Pearls and Gold seed; however, it will not grow true to type and may revert back to one of its parent lines)
