As described by Evergrow: "Big ear, high yield, strong vigor, plant height about 170 cm, ear height 88 cm, broad dark green erect leaves, ear length 22 cm, 5.5 cm in diameter, plump kernel uniform 14-16 rows, wt. about 320-350 gm (not including husk), corn ear with yellow & white kernel, very good contrast color, tender kernel and high sugar, harvest about 95 days in winter, 60 days in summer after sowing. For protecting good kernel quality, avoid flowering stage pollen contamination with non-sweet corn variety or other non-SH2 sweet corn variety. "
