Abstract

The 2007 sweet corn cultivar trial was conducted to identify cultivars with good ear characteristics for local marketing or short distance shipping. This year’s trial focused on the bicolored, high-quality sh2 types, often referred to as augmented or improved sh2, that are reported to be exceptionally sweet and tender. These hybrids need isolation from other corn genetic types in the field and careful handling at harvest, but can provide the best combination of gourmet eating quality with shelf-life that is available.
