Sweetcorn Tassel
Sweetcorn Varieties


For UK grown varieties, sweetcorn comes in three main colours: yellow sweetcorn; white sweetcorn; and bi-colour. Many other colours of sweetcorn are available, but these can have different culinary uses and may require longer hotter summers (than typical in the UK).

Sweetcorn needs no special care, has a relatively short growing season, and will thrive in the large majority of summers – it requires consistent warmth rather than plentiful sun.
