How to harvest: This does require a bit of an eye for a ripe corn cob: the key indicators are that the tassels on the end of the cob are completely dried out and that the cob itself is solid & fat. You can also peel back the outer layer to check the korrels inside. If you pierce one with your finger and the juice is milky coloured, then you’re in business.

Meal ideas: Boil, bake or grill on the BBQ, preparing fresh corn is best kept simple. Serve warm with a bit of melted butter or vegan alternative for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Another tasty option is bakwan jagung, a delicious Indonesian corn fritter.
