Sweet corn is a tasty corn that you can grow in your own backyard.

Sweet corn comes in many varieties that differ in color and sugar content. Look for sugary enhanced (or “se”) varieties, with firm and sweet kernels, or the super sweet (or “sh2”) varieties, with tender and very sweet kernels.

Sweet corn needs at least eight hours of sun per day, and should be planted in blocks of four or more rows for adequate pollination. Plant only one kind of corn.

Sweet corn is ready when the kernels are filled and tightly packed. They must be picked within a day or two and be eaten immediately for best flavor.
