Sweet Corn

Corn Stalks Formed Beaded Looking Top Where Tassel Forms


Valhostetler added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

Why have some of my corn stalks formed a beaded looking top where the tassel will later develop? Have harvested sweet corn from some stalks already. Delicious. Problem: I live in Italy, where we are experiencing a 90+ degree heat wave and, therefore, have also grown some stalks that have formed a beaded looking something I've never seen before in all my gardening, where the tassels should be forming.
