Sweet Corn on the cob, one of the favorite items in the diet of American, has always been an object of wonder to foreigners. Russians scorn it as a food fit only for hogs. the French cannot quite be convinced of its succulence and the Brits look upon our method of eating it as a form of barbarism. Most of this criticism is based, of course, on the fact that until recently Sweet Corn did not mature properly in the climates of these countries.

~Richardson Wright, Another Gardener's Bed-Book, 1933
