Summary:

Twenty-eight super sweet cultivars or lines were evaluated in a
late spring replicated trial. "Summer Sweet 8601" had the highest
yield, but the husk cover was considered below average for our late
spring season and usual heavy earworm pressure. "How Sweet It Is" was
also in the top ten in yield, but again its husk cover was below
average. "Summer Sweet 6700" did not have as good an ear tip fill as it
normally does. It may have been harvested a few days early, thereby the
tips may not have been mature. Several super sweet lines looked good
and most of the top ten in yield show promise (Table 1).

Sixteen yellow and/or bicolor cultivars or lines were evaluated.
All except "XPH 2591" had good husk cover. Line "83-2102" looked good
and had the highest yield of 410 crates per acre as compared with 345
crates per acre for "Gold Cup". "Honeymoon" was the only named cultivar
which out produced "Gold Cup."

Seven white sweet corn cultivars were evaluated in the trial.
"Snowbelle" compared well with "Silver Queen" in appearance. It had a
slightly higher yield, but not significantly higher, and it was several
days earlier.
