If I breed a male candycane corn and a female okeetee corn?

If there are no unknown hets, you'd get all normals het for amel.

well candycane is "just" a Amel and if there are no hets on either side, the offspring will be, Normal het amel.

The offspring from candycane x Okeetee would all be 100% het for amel.

The % is just a probability, so yes, they are all 100% possible het for amel.

Here's what's happening behind the curtain:

The male candycane has gene a<sup>a</sup> paired up with a<sup>a</sup> and one of these will be in each sperm cell.

The female normal has gene A<sup>+</sup> paired up with A<sup>+</sup> and one of these will be in each egg cell.

The offspring will have come from eggs that were A<sup>+</sup> fertilized by a sperm cell that was a<sup>a</sup>, so they will all be A<sup>+</sup>a<sup>a</sup> (which is what "normal, het for amel" means.)

As you see , they are het for amel , not for candycane , because candycane is a selective bred of amel .
If you want to read more about this , look at the Corn Morph Guide
