Believe me, there's nothing better than fresh picked candy corn! In this Instructable, you will learn the proper climate in which to grow this treat, watering intervals, and other useful planting tips so you will have "sweet" success with your crop.
Step 1: Getting Started
Find a seed catalog that specializes in rare seeds. Candy corn seeds are a little pricey because of their rarity and should run you about $8.00 for a dozen.
No matter where you are located, the best time to plant is from the beginning of October to about mid-November.
Start with some good, rich, fertile soil that drains well.
Sow the seeds at a depth of 1/2 inch, spaced about 6 inches apart, then water.
