Sweet Corn

Kathryn Fontenot, Singh, Raghuwinder, Strahan, Ronald E., Brown, Sebe, Koske, Thomas J., Sexton, Mary

When it is grown and handled properly, sweet corn is almost dessert-like in its flavor. Sweet corn is usually grown by gardeners with larger gardens; however, new cultivars are on the market, suited for container production. Nothing beats the taste of fresh sweet corn harvested from the garden. For best flavor, pick and eat the same day. Keep corn cool, in an ice chest or refrigerator between picking and eating, to slow down respiration. If the ears respire too much, the flavor is lost.
