I bought peaches n cream sweet corn off ebay... it was cold and snowy outside lol
The ad says it's heirloom but I can't find any info about peaches n cream being an heirloom seed. Also the seeds are covered in the redish orange chemical they put on them so they don't rot :confused: My fault, should have made sure it was organic seeds!

Any thoughts? Is this type of corn heirloom? Should I plant it and try again next year for heirloom corn or ditch the suspicious corn and buy organic heirloom corn from a local source?

Thanks!

It isn't a gmo but it is a hybrid type of corn I would say go ahead and plant it and enjoy the harvest. I am not apposed to hybrids as they don't kill off the good bugs or wreck the soil.

Yea I wouldn't even consider gmo at all! Nasty stuff they're doing! I was pretty sure it was a hybrid. But I was just so excited about saving my own seeds, lol. Most of my garden this year is heirloom! There's always next year for me to try an heirloom from a reliable source, Thank you! :) Happy gardening!!
