First obtained by Ira Hooker nearly 70 years ago near Olympia, Washington. Ears typically have rows of kernels that dry blue-black upon maturing, and grind into the sweetest cornmeal. For starters, the kernel walls are the most tender of all corn varieties. Added to that are more sugars, making every ear as sweet as can be. Hybrid sh2 Supersweet Corn: The shrunken gene sh2 gives the dried kernels an extra-wrinkled appearance. This inherited characteristic increases the sweetness of the corn at harvest time.
Commonly called Supersweet, sh2 varieties are some of the sweetest corn available. To grow great Supersweet corn, isolate it by time or distance from any other corn. For best seed saving results we recommend bagging plants to avoid cross pollination. Often used for decorating, but it also makes great cornmeal and corn flour. Grow just as you do sweet corn.
The earliest plantings are preferred to ensure ample time for field drying. Ears may be picked after the husks begin drying. Isolation is necessary between varieties to preserve color combinations. After picking and husking, spread the ears in a dry, airy place and allow to cure for several weeks. Test-pop a few kernels periodically to determine when the kernels are dry enough to twist from the cobs, store in airtight containers.
Large quantities can be processed by placing into heaps and stomping the kernels off the ears. For best results, isolate from any other corn. For best results, isolate Synergistic corn from any other corn. Pyrethrin, applied before silking, Monterey B. IR indicates intermediate resistance. Write a Review beautiful corn! This summer was the first time I tried growing corn in Western Washington. I had my doubts that I would get anything, but this variety of corn grew very well!
I also grew the "cafe f1" variety that territorial seeds sells and it did splendid too. I grew a small 3x4 ft bed. Wish I could include a picture. Next year, I want to grow more so I can try my hand at drying the corn to use in making homemade tortillas or tamales. I almost never write a review for anything, but just have to with this one!
