What part of the plant does corn come from?
The corn that we eat is the seed part of the corn plant. Each little kernel is a fertilized seed, and if left to mature and dry can be planted and will grow a corn plant.

Corn is what the entire plant is called. What you're probably thinking about is the part we eat. This is theseed, know in corn plants as the kernel (pronounced as it isspelle…d), and is located on the stem of the plant on what is calledthe ear. The ear of corn is surrounded by a husk (really fibrousleaves) that protect it as it is growing. The cob is the part ofthe ear which is left behind when the kernels are removed. The topmost part of the corn plant is the tassel or the male partof the flower. That's where the pollen forms. Corn relies on windto carry the pollen from the tassel to the ear which is the femalepart of the flower. Because the two parts do not normally mature atthe same time, self-pollination does not happen.
Corned beef is made from the brisket of the cow. Brisket is a beef cut taken from the breast section beneath the first five ribs, behind the foreshank (upper portion of the fr…ont leg).
Most corn plants have a single stem, called a stalk, which grows vertically upward from the ground. The height of the stalk depends both on the variety of the corn and the… environment in which a corn plant is grown. As the stalk grows, leaves emerge. A typical corn plant grown by a farmer in the central United States will have a stalk that is 7 to 10 feet tall and has 16 to 22 leaves. The lower part of each leaf wraps around the stalk and is attached to the stalk at a juncture called a node. Typically the lowest four nodes are below ground. Roots develop from each of these nodes. Sometimes, roots develop from the first aboveground node, and these are known as brace roots. Some varieties of corn in certain environments produce secondary stalks, known as tillers, which grow outward from near the base of the main stalk. Every corn plant has both male and female parts. The male part, which is known as the tassel, emerges from the top of the plant after all the leaves have emerged. The tassel usually consists of several branches, along which many small male flowers are situated. Each male flower releases a large number of pollen grains, each of which contains the male sex cell. The female floral organ is called an ear. The ear develops at the tip of a shank, which is a small, stalk-like structure that grows out from a leaf node located approximately midway between the ground and the tassel. Occasionally, a plant will produce an ear at several consecutive nodes, but the one that is located uppermost on the stalk becomes the largest ear. The immature ear consists of a cob, eggs that develop into kernels after pollination, and silks. The cob is a cylindrical structure upon which kernel development occurs. The kernels are arranged on the cob in pairs of rows. From each egg, a hair-like structure called a silk grows and eventually emerges from the tip of the husk, which is a group of leaves attached to the shank that encloses the entire ear. Pollination occurs when pollen falls on the exposed silks. Following pollination, a male sex cell grows down each silk to a single egg and fertilization (the union of the male and female sex cells) occurs. The fertilized egg develops into a kernel and inside each kernel is a single embryo (a new plant). A vigorous corn plant may have 500 to 1000 kernels on a single ear.
According to Wikipedia , Corned Beef has two meanings : 1. refers to a cut of beef ( usually brisket , but sometimes round or silverside ) cured or pickled in a seasoned… brine . 2. refers to a tinned product generally found with canned goods on supermarket shelves .

the kernels of the corn are flattened and baked in a oven
it is just like beef, but it is called corned beef because of the corn used to sprinkle flavor.
