Abstract

The 2010 sweet corn cultivar trial was conducted to identify cultivars with good ear characteristics for local marketing or shortdistance shipping. This year’s trial focused on the bicolor, high-quality shrunken 2 (sh2) types, often referred to as augmented or improved sh2. They need isolation from other corn genotypes and careful handling at harvest but reward the grower with the best combination of good eating quality and extended shelf life that is available.
