Silver Princess is a new early Se from Syngenta (Rogers). Ears are about an inch shorter than Silver Queen but are ready almost three weeks earlier. I am planting it with Silver King ( a week to 10 days later) and Silver Queen for an extended harvest of highly marketable white sweet corn. As an aside, I spaced all the large sweet corns at least 12 inches and mostly at 18 inch intervals and that is with heavy fertilizer applications..
