There is a lot of recent interest in old-fashioned "heirloom" vegetable varieties. While these varieties may have their place in the garden, hybrid varieties have advantages to the commercial g rower over these older types: namely diseaseresistance, more plant vigor, and often better yields. We suggest planting hybrid varieties, especially any of the Summer Flavor® Brand or Professional Seeds SeriesTM for best results.

A NOTE ABOUT ISOLATION: The reason for isolating super sweet (s h2) types is the same as for isolating white from yellow corn, but more important because marketability of the ear is affected. The sh2 types are isolated to prevent cross pollination with normal sugary sweet corn or field corn. Isolate in one of three ways: by maturity (10 days to two weeks), by distance (100-150 ft. upwind), or use a barrier planting.
