Sweet corn can be divided into three types: normal sugary (SU), sugary enhancer (SE) and supersweet (Sh2). Standard sweet corn varieties contain a “sugary (SU) gene” that is responsible for the sweetness and creamy texture of the kernels. SUs are best suited to being picked, husked and eaten within a very short time. Sugar Enhanced (SE) corn contains a gene that significantly raises the sugar content above standard SU varieties. This variety is the most popular type as it retains tenderness and texture the best. A perfect type for roadside stands and markets. Supersweet (SH2) corn contains a gene that provides the highest sugar content of any other type of corn. The kernels of Supersweet have a crisp, tough skin and low amounts of the water-soluble polysaccharides that impart the creamy texture. Great variety for storing or shipping.
Peaches and Cream corn is one of the sweetest and most tender corns ever developed that matures early for a quality bicolor and sweet flavor.
