|Did You Know?
corn (green corn, indian corn, sweetcorn, sugar corn, pole corn, corn)
is a variety of maize with a high sugar content and usually prepared as
a vegetable. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally-occurring
recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to
starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Unlike field corn
varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature
(dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and eaten
as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Since the process of maturation
involves converting sugar into starch, sweet corn stores poorly and
must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen before the kernels become tough
