Glacial Hybrid Sweet Corn Seed (sh2)

High yields and excellent tip fill.

  • Taste and texture surpasses older varieties
  • Best-tasting white corn
  • Excellent eating quality
We grow a lot of sweet corn in our test gardens, and Glacial is our best-tasting white corn. It far surpasses older varieties in taste and texture. The super-sweet kernels have a nice crisp texture. Its plump, 8-81/2 in. ears are packed with glossy white kernels that stay white and don't yellow—and its dark green husks provide excellent tip coverage. In addition to being a flavor favorite, Glacial Hybrid Sweet Corn produces high yields. For best results, sow sweet corn seed after the soil has warmed to 65 degrees F and all danger of frost has passed. 76 DAYS.
