It could be said that during the first day of the recent Agrilink trade show, the boiled corn at the Ramgo booth sold hotter than the proverbial hotcake. The boiled corn consisted of Sweet Fortune sweet corn, Violeta which is a bicolor waxy corn, and Ruby Queen with an all-purple kernels.
Sweet Fortune is now the current favorite of sweet corn farmers because if its high quality ears preferred by traders and consumers. It is a variety that can be grown successfully both in the wet and dry seasons. Violeta and Ruby Queen, on the other hand, are also prized for their waxy and sweet kernels.
