Sweet corn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa), also called sugar corn and pole corn, is a variety of maize grown for human consumption 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. Sweet corn is picked when still in the immature (milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than field corn, which is harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage). 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.

- Plump, juicy, and as delectable as its name! 75 days. Named for its delectable taste, Ambrosia is as beautiful to see as it is to eat. The 8-inch-long ears are bursting with about 16 rows of jam-packed kernels in a checkerboard pattern of white and yellow. Measuring 2 inches across, the ears are large and very full - the kernels are plump, juicy, and savory-sweet. Plants grow 6 1/2 feet tall, reaching their height earlier in the season than most.
- Sugar-enhanced corn is creamier and more tender than Super Sweet, with stronger old-fashioned corn flavor, yet is sweeter than regular Sweet hybrids. This delicious variety retains its sweetness for up to 10 days after harvest. No isolation from other corn is necessary, and germination is easier than with Super Sweets
- Sow after last spring frost, when the soil is warm. Corn is famously easy to direct-sow in any sunny spot. To extend your corn harvest, make successive plantings weekly up to mid-July, or plant varieties with differing maturity dates
