Corn

The optimum cultivar choice for sweet corn in Saskatchewan varies from year to year depending on growing conditions.

The standard types mature on average 5 days earlier than the sugar enhanced types but the flavor and storage potential of the standard sugar types of corn is inferior to the sugar enhanced types.

The supersweet types mature on average 3 days later than the sugar enhanced types but their flavor and storage potential is superior to the other types of corn.

Standard type

  • Earlivee (RUPP, TS, WCS) – is an exceptionally early, dependable cultivar. It produces reasonable yields with good flavor but cob size is small and tip fill is variable.
  • Early Sunglow (EH, RUPP)
