BRIGHT JEAN: A SWEET CORN VARIETY AFTER A FARMER'S HEART
GROWING SWEET CORN can give farmers much satisfaction. There’s something special or magical about a handsome, sturdy stalk of homegrown sweet corn. But the real deal really lies in harvesting it, particularly the way to harvest it. Waiting for the cobs to get fully grown and picking them really makes it exciting and thinking of peeling it back the sheath to reveal those yellow, full, creamy and juicy kernels is just magical! And I bet that there’s no other better treat than cooking them straight for the sweetest possible taste!

Mario Dela Pasion grows his super sweet corn named Bright Jean in a spot that receives plenty of sunshine in his 3,000-sq.m. land at the back of his house on soil enriched with a lot of well-rotted organic matter such as compost. Being a husband, a father, and a farmer is what he’s good at, but what inspires him the most is the support that he gets from his wife, two children, and one grandchild. It was from his passion (coming from his surname) that led him to grow sweet corn despite the lack of helpers in their neighborhood. He worked, plowed, layout, plats, and water his crops all by himself.
