Sweet Corn

Sweet Corn

Description

Sweet corn is one of several varieties of a tall, widely cultivated cereal plant, bearing seeds or kernels on large ears.

Available year-round with peak season May through August.

Note: Fresh, well-colored green husks with silk ends free of decay or worm damage are indications of a good quality ear. Stem ends should not be too discolored or dry. Ears well-covered with plump, not-too-mature kernels are best. Avoid underdeveloped kernels lacking in good color, old ears with large kernels and ears with dark yellow kernels and depressed areas on the outer surface.
