Super Sweet 80-90 days

"One of the first open pollinated super sweet (Sh2) corns! Medium-large ears have yellow, truly super sweet kernels, and hold their flavor once picked. Still a little variable in maturity and color with some pale yellow kernels, but we think this may be necessary to maintain vigor as corn does poorly with inbreeding. Selected from crosses made between a Tim Peters super sweet called White Sugar and an early release yellow super sweet from Friedemann Ebner of Sativa Rheinau in Switzerland. Because Andrew borrowed so much from Tim and Friedemann, who themselves borrowed so much from the corn breeders before them, he almost called this one “Borrowed Tune.” That name didn’t quite ring true, though. And then with so many of our friends becoming new mamas, we couldn’t resist – this “Sh2” is for the mamas!"
