Canadian Early Supersweet Hybrid Corn is an extremely early "supersweet" variety specifically developed for short-season areas. It produces large, 20-25 cm (8-10") ears of very sweet kernels. "Supersweets" hold their flavor much longer than other varieties when picked. Be sure to separate from other varieties by 7.5 m (25') to maintain its unique characteristics.

How To Grow: Corn Canadian Early Supersweet Hybrid (SH2)
Suggestions: Mineral oil on the silk deters bugs.
Preparation Ideas: Corn is ready to harvest approximately 20 days after silk first appears on cobs. The silk turns brown and the husk will be green. Remove cobs from stalks just before eating. Remove husks and silk from corn ears. Bring water in a large pot to boil (you can add salt to the water if desired). There should be enough water in the pot to cover the ears. Using tongs, carefully insert corn into boiling water. Cover pot and let the water return to boil. Shut off heat and keep lid on pot for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Kernels should be fork tender. Carefully remove corn from water using tongs. Cool corn slightly for handling. Eat unadorned or with butter and pepper.
