Sweet Corn Growing on Male Parts of Plant

persil1984 added on September 2, 2015 | Answered

I am growing sweet corn. I have it in a block growing very well but only one of the plants has 2 offshoots growing from all the way at the stem. Both of these stems now have a male flower growing on the top but they also have sweet corn growing on them! They also have the little tassels coming from them too. I have checked everywhere and nobody even mentions this happening.
