GIFT FROM THE GODS
The origin of corn and
is a mystery that goes back
to the Mayan civilization.
corn is totally dependent on man,
and cannot survive without us.
Although it is a "seed" plant,
it is unable to reproduce itself!
Only 1% of the corn grown today is
"sweet corn", grown and picked fresh
for human food consumption.
The remaining corn varieties are grown
and harvested hard and dry --
flint (Indian corn), dent (field corn)
and hybrid varieties for specialized uses
(popcorn, fuel corn and industrial starch uses.)
All varieties of corn must be cultivated and planted.
Except, that is,
for "candy corn."
