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 the seed, know in corn plants as the kernel (pronounced as it is spelled), and is located on the stem of the plant on what is called the ear. The ear of corn is surrounded by a husk (really fibrous leaves) that protect it as it is growing. The cob is the part of the ear which is left behind when the kernels are removed. The topmost part of the corn plant is the tassel or the male part of the flower. That's where the pollen forms. Corn relies on wind to carry the pollen from the tassel to the ear which is the female part of the flower. Because the two parts do not normally mature at the same time, self-pollination does not happen.
