Farmers' Market Report May 30, 2014


White Corn
Grower: Gloria Tamai

Description: White corn is a sweet corn variety. Its ear is wrapped in layered green to white husks. Both the kernels and milk of white corn are white in color. It has a very high percentage of sugar and water in the composition of the kernels. When at its prime (the milking stage) the kernels will be tender, sweet and succulent. As the ear matures the water decreases, the sugar turns to starch and the kernels become tough with a doughy consistency.
