7 Fun Corn Facts

Before we get started with our simple corn printables, let’s learn a little bit about this crop.

Here are 7 Corn Facts you probably didn’t know!

  1. Corn is a wild grass.
  2. The individual kernel is called corn seed.
  3. There is an even number of rows in every cob of corn.
  4. Corn is not native to Canada.
  5. Popcorn is a type of corn.
  6. Corn was used as a substitute for coffee!
  7. Corn is an ingredient in fireworks

In Southern Mexico, people collected and consumed over 10,000 years ago wild grass, which is now what we call field corn.

Corn seeds are individual kernels and the ear is part of the flower.

Did you know there is an even number of rows in every cob of corn? The average number of kernels in a 16-row cob of corn is 800.

Corn may be one of Canada’s traditional crops, but it is not native to Canada.

65% of the Canadian corn comes from Ontario, 25% from Quebec, and the remaining 10% is grown throughout Canada.

Popcorn is a type of ‘flint’ corn. When heated, the corn gets crisp and puffs into the delicious popcorn.

Corn can be used as a substitute for coffee! In the 1800s when coffee was too expensive and scarce, parched corn was used as a coffee substitute, and the ashes of burnt corn cobs were used as baking soda.

Corn is an ingredient in fireworks. There are plenty of products that use corn, including antibiotics, glue, paper, insulation, shoe polish, cosmetics, detergent, paint, and many others.

These and more facts about corn can be found in the following link.
