I think the sweetness factor may have to do with something other than
color but I could be wrong.
Wow, James! Those Ambrosia ears have certainly filled out nicely. Looks more like my Bodacious.
Kandy Korn really could not reach maturity here, Joed. The weather began too cool before it had really run thru its course. I avoid any warm-season variety that claims to be 80 days+. And, not all SE varieties can be planted in cold soil . . . at least, that is the claim. The whole class made a wonderful contribution to my corn growing
Note the "Early maturing and capable of vigorously sprouting in cool soils" for Eric's Sugar Dots. Obviously, you will need enuf garden space next year for 4 to 6 varieties
