Something about corn:

1.Corn plant has male and female flowers, usually the tassel (male) shows on the top first.  It is annual.

2.Corn stigma is called “silk".

3.Female inflorescence is with young silk.  After pollinated the silk turns dark and dry.

4.Many small male flowers make up the male inflorescence, called the tassel.

5.When corn cob matures the outside layers (husk) turn outward called ‘ears’.

6.Hybrid corn (use different plant pollen to pollinate female flower) will have stronger gene which grow bigger and taller and able to grow more corn.

7.Glass gem corn is a native corn, not genetically modified.

8.Many different types of corn in the world are for different uses in food.  Some with hard kernels are good for corn flour or for pop corn.  Soft sweet kernels are good for quick cook vegetables.

9.About 90% of the corn grown in the US has been genetically modified.

10.Growing from seed to harvest usually takes around 3.5 months.

一些有關玉米的知識:

1.一株玉米有雄花和雌花之分. 植株頂上先開雄花花序,再從植株腋下長出的是雌花序,玉米是屬於風媒花.  它是一年生的作物.

2.有絲狀流蘇的花是雌花花序.

3.雌花花序的絲狀流蘇授粉前是淺綠色的,授粉後是褐色的.

4.雄花花序是由很多小花所組成的頂生花穗.

5.玉米穗成熟時穗外的包覆上會有揚起的耳狀部份,包覆會變乾黃即是種子成熟,要食用的甜玉米不可等太熟才採收.

6.玉米同品種雜交的後代植株較高,較強壯,產量也較高.

7.寶石玉米是原生的玉米品種,不是基因改良的產物.

8.世上的玉米依用途的種類有品種的不同,有的是玉米粒含水低,很硬的是用來做為磨粉做玉米麵粉,玉米澱粉或是爆米花用的玉米,含水量較高較甜的是用來水煮吃的,有的玉米是以採未熟的嫩雌花序,即是玉米筍.

9.美國約有90%的玉米都是基因改良過的玉米.

10.玉米由種子到採收的種植期約為3.5個月.
