Sweet corn, also known as sweet corn or corn for human consumption, has its origin in Central America. It has been cultivated for centuries and prized for its sweet and tender flavor.

Difference from other corn:

Sweet corn is distinguished by its sweet flavor and tender texture . Unlike other varieties of corn that are mainly used for animal feed or to process into derivative products, sweet corn is consumed directly by people due to its delicious flavor.


Sweet corn is generally planted from April to June, depending on weather conditions and region. It can be pre-grown indoors before transplanting outdoors, which can increase yield. Seeds are planted at a depth of approximately 2-3 cm, and a distance of around 45 cm is recommended between individual corn stalks. Corn tends to grow best in areas with plenty of sunlight, and the soil should be moist and well-drained.


Sweet corn seeds typically germinate within 7 to 10 days after sowing, depending on environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity.



If sweet corn is grown in pots, it is recommended not to allow it to grow taller than five feet, as it can become brittle and break. In that case, the plant can be cut at that height, and it will continue to produce ears. It is important to provide supports or guides so that the shoots grow vertically and prevent the plant from bending or breaking. Corn requires adequate nutrition, so it is advisable to fertilize the soil before planting. In addition, it needs high sun exposure, heat and good ventilation. Keeping the substrate always moist is essential, since a lack of water can affect the formation of grains.


The harvest time for young sweet corn approaches approximately 20 days after the beards appear on the cobs. Some signs that indicate that corn is ready to harvest are:

- The beards of the cob have a dark color and do not feel wet when touched.

- When you squeeze the ears in the middle, they do not give way.

- The grains are pale in color (if they are intense yellow or orange, they are overripe).

- When you press the grains with your fingernail, they give way and expel a milky liquid.

It is advisable to harvest early in the morning or late afternoon, when the temperature is cool. The cobs should then be stored in a cool place protected from direct sunlight.

Sweet corn is harvested when the kernels are a very deep yellow color, before they become too hard. If the ears are green, their flavor is not well defined; When they are very ripe, they become hard and have a doughy texture.

In the case of corn cobs used for popcorn, harvesting is done when the leaves that cover the cob are already dry.
