Harvesting Sweet Corn

The sweet corn that I planted several months ago (see this blog entry) is ready for harvest.

You can see the ears of corn sticking out from the stalks in the picture to the right.

The picture below shows one of the ears of corn that I peeled back.


  1. The corn looks good. Is/was it sweet?

  2. Do you get a worm at the top of the ears inside ever? If so, do you care or do anything about it?

  3. I really could not taste the difference between my Sweet Corn and the supermarket Sweet Corn. So, I decided not to plant anymore Sweet Corn. See this blog entry for why.

  4. Yes, there were a couple of ears of corn that have a worm at the top. I threw those ears away.

  5. Hi,

    Thought you might want to know, I'm assuming you're growing for health reasons as well, most of the corn in supermarkets today are GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) opposed to an open pollinated or heirloom.
