Brewbaker Brittle 2
A breeding population created by tropical corn master, James Brewbaker, which he called "our best genetic base..with a wide array of tolerances to diseases and pests". Created by crossing 15 superior inbred lines he had created. We have found to be relatively uniform, strong, and tasty in various grow outs in various locations. This is a "super sweet" corn resulting from the brittle-1 gene (bt1) uniquely used by Brewbaker as opposed to most super sweets which use the shrunken-2 gene (sh2). The brittle gene was found to have better adaptation to tropical soil conditions during germination. Released in 1998. Save some of your seeds to adapt to your conditions!
Corn is best planted in block rather than long rows for good pollination.
