This article is about the grain crop corn, sometimes also known as maize. You may be looking for grains, which are called "corn" in some forms of English.
The Harvester rig Rostok harvesting corn on Prairie

Corn is a plant and food crop native to Earth and a staple of diets of many Humans.

The homestead of the Kirk family in Riverside, Iowa on Earth's North American continent was located in an area of farmland that was predominantly cornfields. (TOS novel: Final Frontier)

Corn was grown in vast quantities on the agrarian planet Prairie, where it was harvested by large vehicles called Harvester rigs. In 2254 Captain Christopher Pike crash landed in the shuttlecraft Icarus into the corn fields of Prairie, igniting a fire in the crops which was quickly extinguished by the crew of the Harvester rig Rostok. Shortly after Pike piloted a skimmer over the corn fields while trying to evade his Klingon pursuers, but was shot down. Fortunately the corn provided him some cover allowing him to. (EV comic: "The Flat, Gold Forever")

There is more information available on this subject at Corn on the English-language Wikipedia.

Corn, also known as maize, is a species of cereal grain cultivated and consumed by humans. It originated on Earth, but has since been grown on other UNSC colonies such as Harvest.[1] It is also eaten in the form of Corn on the Cob.[2]

Corn was one of the crops grown by Jenkins' family, and sold for more than soy. Corn comes in a variety of colors. Droughts are especially dangerous for corn due to its short roots.

A corn cob also refers to a pipe smoked by Captain Keyes.

Because of its high protein and carbohydrate content, corn has been an important nutritional resource for thousands of years. Corn can be traced back to Mexican or central American cultures as early as 3400 B.C., and has become a staple among Native American civilizations throughout the Western Hemisphere. Today, corn has less starch and is sweeter. The sweetness accounts for its popularity among Americans. Americans consume about 25 pounds of corn per person annually, most of which is frozen or canned. A good thing about corn is that frozen and canned corn has about the same nutritional value as fresh corn. So, for the many Americans who are not able to get fresh corn, they can still enjoy frozen or canned for nearly the same nutritional value as fresh corn.

Maize (Zea mays ssp. mays) is a cereal grain that was domesticated in Mesoamerica. It is called corn in the United States, Canada, and Australia, but in other countries that term may refer to other cereal grains. It is called mealies in southern Africa. Hybrid maize is favored by farmers over conventional varieties for its high grain yield, due to heterosis ("hybrid vigor"). Maize is one of the first crops for which genetically modified varieties make up a significant proportion of the total harvest.

While some maize varieties grow 7 m (23 ft) tall at certain locations, commercial maize has been bred for a height of 2.5 m (9 ft). Sweetcorn is usually shorter than field-corn varieties.

Varieties

There are more than two hundred varieties of corn. All are good sources of vitamin C.

Selection

Make sure the husks are green, tight and fresh looking. Pull the husk open to make sure that the ear contains tightly packed rows of plump kernels. The kernels should be smaller at the tip of each ear. Large kernels at the tip is a sign of overmaturity. If you pinch a kernel, milky juice should spurt out. Corn should be stored in a cool area. Warmth causes the sugar content of corn to be converted into starch. This process will cause the ears to become less sweet.

Storage

If the corn is not cooked shortly after it is purchased, then it should be stored in refrigerator. Refrigeration helps the corn retain its sugar and vitamin C content. If you buy unhusked corn, keep it in its husk until you are ready to cook it. This will help the corn retain its moisture content. To fully enjoy the great taste of sweet corn, cook it as soon as possible. The sooner the better is a good "rule of thumb."

Runescape

(Redirected to Sweetcorn article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about uncooked sweetcorn. For a bowl of sweetcorn, see Sweetcorn (bowl).

Raw Sweetcorn is a food item that members can receive through Farming (by planting three sweetcorn seeds into an allotment) or by trading with other players.

A scarecrow is used to protect growing sweetcorn from disease[1], and nine raw sweetcorn are used as payment for a farmer to watch over your growing apple tree[2].

Players can cook sweetcorn on a cooking range or a fire to make cooked sweetcorn (or occasionally burnt sweetcorn); This requires level 28 cooking, and gives 104 experience[3].

Cooked sweetcorn heals 10% of a player's max hitpoints by itself; however it is more frequently used as an ingredient in making tuna potatoes.

Players can also take raw sweetcorn to a windmill, put it in the hopper, and use an empty pot on the flour bin to get the cornflour used to free Sir Amik Varze in the Recipe for Disaster quest.

This particular piece of food is the one of the only pieces of uncooked food that isn't prefixed "raw," which can create confusion with the identically named bowl of sweetcorn.
