SSW® is a new and exciting breakthrough in super-sweet corn genetics. Developed and patented by Abbott &
Cobb, SSW® 's are 100% natural. They have notably enhanced performance even with early plantings in colder
or wetter soil. Growers can expect strong stalk and root systems, early maturity, better disease tolerance and high
yields. SSW® 's also have dramatically improved seed storage and shelf life.
Patent No.'s: 8,796,504 and 8,822,756 and 6,184,438.
Moisture Level and Soil Temperature
Tests have shown best emergence with normal or slightly above normal moisture.
Be sure to provide adequate moisture, but avoid over watering. Sweet corn tends
not to germinate below 45° Fahrenheit; however, SSW® shows improved vigor
and uniformity at lower temperatures as compared to ordinary sh2 varieties.
Seed Density and Appearance
SSW®'s are denser than sh2 seeds, and do
not show defined dents, wrinkles, or dimples.
They are heavier, sturdier, with smoother
coats, and are easier to handle than
conventional sh2 corns.
Proper Handling and Storage
SSW® seed is denser and less susceptible to physical damage
than conventional sh2s. However, in order to ensure best results,
avoid rough handling and excessive agitation prior to planting.
As with all seed, store any unused seed in sealed containers in a
cool, dry storage area to ensure maximum shelf life and viability.
For best possible appearance, maximum
eating quality, and longest shelf life
for 100% of the kernels, SSW®'s should
be isolated from cross pollination by
other corn types. The usual practices,
using maturity, sowing dates or physical
isolation, would apply.
More Corn Flavor!
SSW®'s have very high germ rates and will likely
establish a population close to the sown quantity.
It is important NOT to sow seed too close together,
as this may result in crowded stands, smaller or
misshapen ears, and lower yield.
Sweet corn varieties with the Stays Rich Green, or SRG® , characteristics have extra
dark green plants and husks, as well as thicker leaves that stay dark green even
beyond full ear maturity and enhanced emergence and vigor.
SRG®'s harvested ears maintain a rich green appearance
and hold better for fresh market and retail displays, making
them much more appealing to consumers.
HiGlow® and MultiGlow® sweet corns have really intense and
distinct color that gives the variety a very “fresh picked” look.
They also have a longer harvest window -- holding color,
kernel appearance and sweetness both on and off the plant for a greater length
of time. MultiGlow® corns have a combination of MultiSweet® eating quality and
HiGlow® kernel color.
