We love the Vision corn in Oregon. Very sweet and tender, incredible flavor. We do spaced plantings in our garden a week apart in Spring after the ground is worked to have corn into October. BUT...I HAVE A Vision corn genetically modified?? Anyone have the answer please email me or answer here. Thanks.

I've purchased this sweet corn Vision (sh2) seed in 2008 from Johnny's Seeds website, it is the best variety of sweet corn I have grown to date. 90%+ seed germination in Central Pennsylvania spring where night time lows average 55 degrees. Deep kernals, very sweet, slightly crunchy, excellent eating and for canning.
