Fruit Sweet Corn Cob

Fruit Sweet Corn Cob is a variety of maize (corn) belonging to the Poaceae family, Zea mays. Its stalks grow upright and can reach a height of up to 3 meters. The stalks are thick with long internodes, and leaves are large and surround the stalks with long leaf sheaths. Near the ground, several nodes can easily develop adventitious roots, providing support to the stalks. Sweet corn exhibits a type of inflorescence known as “monoecious” with both male and female flowers on the same plant. The male flowers form at the top and resemble spikes, while the female flowers are spike-like and grow between the leaf sheaths. They feature prominent purple-red styles, and the stigmas dangle like soft hairs.

Sweet corn is celebrated as “fruit corn” due to its richer content of proteins, fats, lysine, and tryptophan in the tender kernels compared to regular corn.

Originating in the United States, sweet corn has become a staple vegetable in developed countries such as Europe, the United States, South Korea, and Japan. It thrives in warm climates, requiring soil temperatures above 12°C for proper germination. Sweet corn is wind-pollinated, making block planting of seeds more conducive to growth.

Sweet corn can be consumed fresh or cooked as a vegetable. Its sweetness, stickiness, and high nutritional value make it suitable for processing into various pastries and corn sauces. It can also be processed into canned goods and stored by freezing. After harvesting the immature ears of sweet corn, their fresh stems and leaves can be used as feed for cattle.

Sweet corn is also known for its health benefits. It contains nutrients like maltose, glucose, maltotriose, and fructose, which are easily absorbed by the human body. Consuming sweet corn can promote child growth and development and contribute to the well-being of the elderly. Long-term consumption of sweet corn can enhance brain cell function, prevent atherosclerosis, and show significant therapeutic effects in conditions like hypertension, diabetes, and epilepsy.

Botanical History


Fruit Sweet Corn Cob is a variant in maize cultivation, resulting from genetic mutations occurring in regular maize due to its cultivation environment. It was developed through isolation and selective breeding. Its name is derived from the fact that its kernels are rich in sugars, plump, juicy, and delicious during the milk-ripe stage

Morphological Characteristics

Sweet corn has upright stems that can reach heights of 1 to 3 meters. The stems are thick, with long internodes, and leaves are large, surrounding the stems with substantial leaf sheaths. It has weak branching, and near the ground, several nodes can easily produce adventitious roots, which penetrate the soil, supporting the stems. Sweet corn exhibits monoecious flowers, with both male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers form at the top, resembling spikes, while female flowers are spike-like and grow between the leaf sheaths. Each node produces one spike, although some nodes may produce 2 to 3 spikes. Each spike is spindle-shaped, wrapped in several bracts, and features purple-red styles that dangle like soft hairs. The number of ovaries matches the number of long soft hairs.

Growing Environment Fruit Sweet Corn Cob

Sweet corn is a warm-season crop, with germination occurring at soil temperatures of 12 to 15°C. The germination temperature range is 12 to 38°C, and the plants can recover from short-term freezing at -3 to -2°C but will die at -4°C. During the seedling stage, the average daytime temperature should not drop below 17°C, and nighttime temperatures should remain above 12°C. A temperature range of 10 to 12°C day and night leads to an extended growth period. The average temperature for root growth is 17 to 24°C, with root growth ceasing below 10°C. Ideal temperatures for plant growth range from 21 to 24°C, while flowering and grain development require temperatures of 25 to 27°C. Sweet corn is a short-day crop. It requires ample moisture during its growth period, with an annual rainfall requirement of 500 to 1000 millimeters. Particularly, there should be 150 millimeters of rainfall in the month around tasseling to ensure plump kernels and good yields. Sweet corn can adapt to a wide range of soil types but thrives in deep, loose, well-drained sandy loam soil rich in organic matter, with an optimal pH range of 5 to 8.

Distribution Range Fruit Sweet Corn Cob

Sweet corn originated in the United States and is one of the main vegetables in developed countries such as Europe, the United States, South Korea, and Japan. In China, sweet corn was introduced from the United States in the 1940s.
