Sweet corn genetic types

Nearly all sweet corn types listed below rely on one of two

recessive genes (SU1 "normal" and SH2 "shrunken"). Each

type may benefit from isolation from other types within its

own group and the resulting cross pollination will not produce

field corn kernels. Cross pollination between groups, or with

field or popcorn, will produce field corn kernels. Listed here

are the groupings of SU1 and SH2 genotypes and some of the

trademarks or brand names currently available.

GENOTYPE GENERAL INFORMATION ISOLATION AND PLANTING INFORMATION

SU SUGARY (Normal)

 Normal sugary (SU) varieties are the standard type of

sweet corn enjoyed for many years. They are known for

their creamy corn flavor and mild sugars. The sugars

quickly convert to starch so they are best eaten soon

after harvest.

 Isolate from field, popcorn and SH2 group of

sweet corns.

SE SUGARY ENHANGED

 These sweet corns contain the sugary enhanced (SE)

modifier genes that increase sugars and tenderness to

varying degrees. These higher sugar levels result in

hybrids that maintain their quality over a longer period

of time. Homozygous denotes that both parents of the

hybrid are SE.

 Isolate from field, popcorn and SH2 group of

sweet corns. For best results, also isolate from

Normal (SU) sweet corn.

SYN SYNERGISTIC

 Synergistic sweet corns combine the characteristics of

both supersweet and sugary enhanced varieties. The

kernels segregate on the ear at three sugary enhancer

kernels to one supersweet. Synergistic varities are not

recommeneded for long haul shippers or processors and

must be isolated from supersweet varities.

 Isolate from field, popcorn and SH2 group of

sweet corns. For best results, isolate from SU1

Normal (SU) sweet corn.

SH2 SHRUNKEN (aka Supersweets)

 Shrunken (Supersweets) contain the shrunken-2 (SH2)

gene and get their name from the appearance of the

dried kernel. Shrunkens have a very high sugar content,

as well as a slower conversion of sugar to starch.

Shrunken sweet corns must be isolated from other

non-shrunken corns.

 Isolate from all SU1 groups of sweet corns, field

and popcorns.

 

Do not plant too deep. Soil temperature needs to

be at least 60 degrees F.

AU AUGMENTED SHRUNKENS

 Augmented Shrunken sweet corns are a new generation

of shrunken corn types. Like regular shrunkens, they

contain the SH2 gene, but kernels of augmented

shrunken are extra juicy and tender like sugary

enhanced (SE) varieties.

 Isolate from all SU1 groups of sweet corns, field

and popcorns.

 

Do not plant too deep. Soil temperature needs to

be at least 60 degrees F.
