The sweeter the corn, the better the summer.

There are only two major types of corn grown in Georgia: field corn and sweet corn. Sweet corn is what consumers purchase fresh, frozen or canned for eating. It’s produced from hybrids that are specifically developed to have a higher sugar content than regular field corn. The results? Corn that’s sweet to the last kernel.
