2000 seeds per pound
PLANTING: After soil has warmed up to 65°F (70-75°F for SH2 & SH2SL) till soil fine and loose. Enrich with compost or fertilizer, as corn
is a heavy feeder. Direct sow seeds, 1-1.5″ deep, 5-10″ apart on a row spacing of 30-36″ apart. For best results, plant in blocks or 3-4 rows, instead of 1 long row. Isolate different corn varieties by a distance of 100-150′ or by maturity. Keep soil moist and weed free. After corn is a foot tall, we like to add Bradfield fertilizer at the rate of 5 lbs per 100′ row, right on row just before tilling or cultivating soil. If you use a chemical fertilizer, do not put it on row or you may burn plants. HARVEST: When kernels are full, but still in the milky stage, pick ears from plants. Husk and use fresh, can, dry or freeze for later use. You will need 1/4 LB (500 seeds) per 100′ of row or about 10 pounds per (25,000 seeds) acre.
The letter or letters after each sweet corn variety stands for the following:
F1 Hybrid. Possesses superior vigor and yielding qualities. You cannot save seeds from hybrids as hybrid seed have to be crossed from pure parent lines each time to get the same results.
OP Open pollinated. Low sugar content and not as sweet as a hybrid. Resembles field corn. This one you can save seed from, if kept pure.
SU Standard Sugary type. 8-18% sugar content. A good choice for a diabetic.
SG Sweet Gene/25% SH2. 25% sugar content. Isolation desirable and needs warm soil, above 70F to germinate.
HSE Heterozygous Sugar Enhancer. 20-25% sugar content and tender. Isolation desirable
RM Tolerant or resistant to Common Rust and Maize Dwarf Mosaic
SE Homozygous Sugar Enhancer. 30-40% sugar content and tender. Isolation desirable.
SG Synergistic, combines the characteristics of both super sweet & sugar enhanced varieties.
SH2 Shrunken 2. 35-45% sugar content, crisp and a high seed count per pound of seed. Needs isolation and extra warm soil, 70F or above or seed will rot before germinating.
SH2SL Improved Shrunken 2 Super Lite. 45-50% sugar content, crisp and tender.
Isolation needed. Needs extra warm soil, 70F or above or seed will rot before germinating.
TS Triple sweet, new class of 75% SE & 25% SH2 kernels on the same ear, longer lasting sweetness then SE.
