As the name implies, these varieties are especially sweet.  These are all hybrids containing the sh2 endosperm gene which has been around since 1956 and is only now creating a sweet corn revolution.  The conversion of sugar to starch is considerably slower both on the stalk and after picking.  Since the seeds are shriveled, there are substantially more seeds per pound.  These varieties REQUIRE ISOLATION by at least 250 feet in each direction.  Cross-pollination will seriously affect the eating quality.  For good germination, plant the seeds after the soil has reached 80 degrees F.
