Effect of the Brittle-1 Sugary-1 Double Mutant Combination on Carbohydrate and Postharvest Quality of Sweet Corn1

Abstract

Abstract

Whole kernels of the double mutant combinations of brittle-1 sugary-1 of maize (Zea mays L.) contain about 40 and 200% of the water-soluble polysaccharides and sucrose, respectively, of the sugary-1 mutant alone. More important, the double mutant preserves 90% of the sucrose even up to 4 days postharvest at room temperature. These features of the double mutant may offer a desirable new high quality sweet corn with the added potential for improving post-harvest quality.
