CLASSIFICATIONS
HYBRID

Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination

SE - SUGAR ENHANCED HETEROZYGOUS

Higher sugar content and more tender than SU. Sugar converts to starch more slowly after harvest. Just picked flavor. Lasts over a week in the fridge. As heterozygous, about 25% of their kernels have the SE characteristics. Isolate from field, ornamental, popcorn, SH2 and SU group.
