Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
SH2 - NORMAL SUGAR HYBRID
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 pop corns. Do not plant too deep. Soil temperatures need to be at least 60 degrees F.
