From Seminis, which provides this information: "Vitality, formerly XP 08725994, is a bicolor synergistic SE sweet corn hybrid that has about 25 percent sh2 kernels for added sweetness and eating quality. Vitality performs well in cold soil and is well-suited for the early market at 66-67 days maturity. The ears have 14-16 rows with good husk protection and outstanding eating quality for an early variety."
