- Seed size before storage can affect the performance of the seed after storage. Seed size correlates to energy reserves, and therefore an evaluation of the relationship between seed size and seed quality is needed. This paper discusses variations in the seed sizes of sixteen UNPAD sweet corn lines to determine the relationship between seed size and seed quality. The sweet corn lines used in this study were classified into two groups by seed mass (weight). Seeds classified as small averaged between 8.0-10.6 g per 100 seeds in mass, and heavy seeds averaged between 11.5-13.7 g per 100 seeds. The results showed that seed moisture content and germination rate were significantly correlated to seed size, and there was a slight positive correlation between the seed germination rate and seed weight. We conclude that heavy seeds were of better quality than small seeds
