Corn Sweet / Maiz Dulce

Sweet corn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa) is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Maize was first cultivated in Oaxaca, Mexico a little over 7, 000 years ago.
