Standard sugary (su) Old-fashioned sweet corn with which we are all familiar. It must be consumed quickly after harvest, or the sugars rapidly turn to starch.


Sugary-enhanced (se) Contain more sugar than the su type and, if cooled, will remain sweet for several days after harvest.


Supersweet (sh2) Also contains more sugar than the su type but converts very little sugar to starch. If properly cooled, an sh2 variety will remain sweet for 7 to 10 days after harvest.


Synergistic (sy) The kernels segregate on the ear at 3 sugary enhancer kernels to 1 super sweet. Must be isolated from super sweet varieties.
