Furthermore, can you eat the cob of a corn?
A corncob, also called cob of corn, is the central core of an ear of corn (also known as maize in Spanish-speaking countries). Young ears, also called baby corn, can be consumed raw, but as the plant matures the cob becomes tougher until only the kernels are edible.
One may also ask, what part of the corn is the husk? Husk (or hull) in botany is the outer shell or coating of a seed. It often refers to the leafy outer covering of an ear of maize (corn) as it grows on the plant. Literally, a husk or hull includes the protective outer covering of a seed, fruit, or vegetable.
Also question is, what part of corn do you eat?
The kind people eat on the cob (typically in the summertime) is known as sweet corn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa), and it makes up only one percent of the corn grown in the U.S. each year. Sweet corn is harvested during the summer months when the tops of the husks start to turn brown.
What are pieces of corn called?
