SWEETCORN SEED

TENDERSWEET® hybrids are the new generation of sweetcorn which combine the qualities of several different sweetcorn genetic sources. TENDERSWEET® hybrids typically are short to medium stature plants with good root and stalk strength that produce attractively packaged cobs with excellent tip fill. TENDERSWEET® kernels are very tender and have exceptional sweetness and taste. TENDERSWEET® hybrids also have the added advantage of their extended harvest window, allowing corn to be picked from the same planting for up to 10 days. The following sweetcorn hybrids have been selected by Corson Maize Seed agronomists in conjunction with our trial growers. They represent a marked improvement over our previous standard supersweet hybrids in eating quality, plant and cob characteristics.
