Corn, Sweet 'Honey Select' F1
2001 AAS Vegetable Award Winner

'Honey Select' has proven its delicious sweet honey flavor and tender eating quality in trials across North America. The only reason to grow your own sweet corn is flavor and 'Honey Select' has flavor and ease of growing. A TripleSweet variety, 'Honey Select' ears are 75% sugary enhanced (se) and 25% supersweet (sh2) kernels. Unlike a super sweet type, 'Honey Select' does not require isolation from other corn pollen. Maturing in about 79 days, gardeners will find yellow 'Honey Select' ears about 8 inches long. Mature ears can be harvested over a longer time without loss of eating quality due to the supersweet kernels slowing the conversion of sugar to starch.
