Growing Corn Sprouts

Growing Corn Sprouts

Seed Storage

Corn is best stored in a cool location - at home, we keep ours in a freezer, but a refrigerator works well too. If you plan on storing Corn for more than 6 months you should use one of these cool locations. Also, Corn is pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them.

Happy Sprouting!
