Sweet Corn

Sweet corn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa; also called sugar corn and pole corn)
is a variety of maize with a high sugar content.

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 prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain.chini flower.

Zucchini, like all squash, has its ancestry in the Americas.

Since the process of maturation involves converting sugar to starch, sweet corn stores poorly and must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen, before the kernels become tough and starchy.

GreenPoint’s Sweet Corn (yellow, white and bi-color) take 3000 acres out of cultivation and are commercialized from November to April.
