This recent variety, one of the first open-pollinated super-sweet sweet corn, produces multiple yellow ears with extremely sweet kernels early in the season. They retain their flavor after harvest. This variety has been selected from crosses between Tim Peters' very sweet corn variety, “White Sugar”, and an early yellow corn variety from Friedemann Ebner ode Sativa Rheinau in Switzerland.
