why is my corn kernels are sprouts on the cob

josephlee(5)August 24, 2011


I have never seen this before and I have been growing corn for 40 years.

This year I plant blue peruvian sweet corn,they grown 2-1/2 feet tall ,like they were suppose too.

They produce 6 to 8 cobs of corn 5 inches long and 4 inches round ,the cobs grow on the basic of the plant and at the 3rd and 4th leave.they mature in 60 days.

Well here my question why have 30% of the kernals on the cobs of corns have germinated on the stalks?

Should I be able to save the ungerminated seeds for next year,are they vitable.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'm clueless as to what happened. Please repost this question the the Vegetable Forum. Hopefully someone there knows the answer.
