Sweet Corn Types

Savor fresh-picked flavor!

Sweet corn has come a long way! Choose from the following types:

    Sugary-Enhanced Hybrids (se)

    •  Superior tenderness, creamy texture and good “corn” flavor
    •  Higher sugar levels than su varities resulting in hybrids that hold their quality longer than a week
    •  Isolate from all sh2 and su corn varieties.

    Normal or High-Sugar Hybrids (su)

    •  Hearty corn flavor and firm, creamy texture—has been grown and enjoyed for many years
    •  Sugars convert to starches quickly so best eaten shortly after harvest.
    •  Vigorous germination and easy to grow
    •  Isolate from sh2 varieties

    Super-Sweet Hybrids (sh2)

    •  Extra-sweet flavor and crisp texture
    •  Higher sugar content than se and su varieties, as well as a slower conversion of sugars to starches— holds more than a week.
    •  Isolate from su, se and synergistic types.

    Synergistic Hybrids (se/sh2)

    •  Combines the best characteristics of sh2 and se types—very high sugar content, tender crisp texture and slow conversion of sugars to starches.
    •  Isolate from sh2 and su varieties.

    Gotta Have It® Hybrid

    •  Sweetest of all types; tender, crisp texture
    •  Highest sugar content and slowest conversion of sugars to starches—holds more than two weeks
    •  Isolate from all se and su varieties.
