1985 SWEET CORN CULTIVAR TRIAL, ZELLWOOD, IFfq A. UniV. O Fionrda

J. M. White and William Llewellyn1

Cooperator: Long Farms

Experimental Design: Complete block with 3 replications. Plots were 3 rows
measuring 3 feet X 15 feet. Plots were hand planted and thinned to one plant
every 9 inches (19,360 plants per acre).

Planted: March 25, 1985, in a Lauderhill muck soil.

Harvested: May 30 June 11 (66-78 days after planting)

Summary: Six of the 17 super sweet lines plus the sweet gene FMX161 had good
yields (247-366 crates/acre). Florida Staysweet had the highest yield and the
best overall plant and ear appearance of the super sweet lines.

S Seven white sweet corn lines produced as well or better than Silver Queen
with XPH2562W and WH2727 being the overall leaders.

Twelve lines had as good as or better yield as the standard yellow Gold Cup
variety. Three other lines had a higher yield, but their ears were too low on
the stalk. Other specific comments on husked ears are: 1) no flavor, XP-071,
Seneca RXP334, Seneca RXP341, and GH2267; 2) long ears, 83-F479, Golden Glade,
Wintergreen, and Marada; 3) looks and taste good, HXP3359S and 83-F439; 4)
short and wide ears, AVX2574; and 5) wide ears, WX9060.

Seeds were obtained from the following:
