Here are some fun corn you can grow if you INTENTIONALLY cross/hand-pollinate your corn
I don't know what I'm doing, though. All I know is that the shrunken kernels are likely due to the the (sh) genes that make the sweet corn hybrid varieties sweet. I'd love it if you could comment on what you see. Any thoughts? Tips? Advice for what to do next?
Harvested today -- Kandy Korn x Glass Gem F2, self pollinated and/intentionally crossed with available pollen from Mirai350BC, Ashworth, Double Red Sweet, volunteer that might be Bloody Butcher.
I'm definitely going to save the seeds from that top one with ALL the different colors separately. That one is a beauty. DD jokingly asked if she could EAT that one – I told her she can eat what grows from them next year
Harvested a few days ago
MIrai350BC cobs -- .Lots of shrunken kernels? Some are shrunken but GG like?
In the next group, same top and bottom as above but the middle one is Ashworth for comparison
Here are more Ashworth
