Sweet Corn Type

Sweet Corn Type Seed

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.
