Illusion Hybrid Sweet Corn (sy)

Early-Season White Variety

Sweet, bright white kernels with a tender-crisp texture grow on 7½-8 in. ears. This early sweet corn hybrid has excellent tip fill, dark green husks and long, attractive flag leaves. It's an excellent choice for market growers and home gardeners. Synergistic hybrids have a very high sugar content, tender-crisp texture and slow conversion of sugars to starches. When planting, isolate from super-sweet (sh2) and normal or high-sugar (su) hybrids. Seeds should be spaced 10-12 in. apart in rows 36 in. apart. For adequate pollination, plant in blocks of at least four rows. Approx. 250 seeds per packet. 72 DAYS.
All Gurney's corn seed is now treated.
