Corn - Sweet (se)

If we had to choose two vegetables that were MUCH better home grown than bought from a store (hard task, there are a lot!) corn and tomatoes would be our choice. Luscious is a bicolor corn that matures in 75 days - an advantage in areas with a shorter growing season. Outstanding flavor, sweetness and tenderness. Great fresh but can also be canned or frozen.
