Yellow corn is a sweet corn cultivar. It has lime-hued husks wrapped around its ears, with silks and a tassel extending from the tip. The yellow kernels are tightly packed in nearly uniform rows. Up to 400 kernels can be found in a single ear of corn. Freshly harvested yellow corn at its full maturity is sweet, with almond and sugar aromas, and the kernels are so succulent that the skin explodes when you bite into it. Corn kernels lose their creamy consistency as they develop, giving place to a starchy, doughy texture. Corn is now classified as a grain crop and is best used for processing or as a feedstock.
Yellow corn is available throughout the year.
Information Currently Available
Corn is a plant that belongs to the Gramineae family and has the scientific name Zea mays. It is also known as maize in other languages. Although it is essentially a grain crop, it is treated as a vegetable when harvested young. Its stalks generate a cob of seeds known as kernels, despite the fact that they are botanically the separate fruits of the plant. Yellow corn is just one of thousands of heirloom, hybrid, and genetically engineered maize varieties. White corn has evolved into yellow corn as a result of natural selection. The majority of yellow corn on the market now is a hybrid variety created in the twentieth century. The Connecticut Agricultural Experimental Program released the first hybrid yellow sweet corn, ‘Redgreen,’ .
