I bought 10 ears of corn and all were butter cream yellow except for this one. What would make it this color right out of the husk?
Different variety seed, looks like silver queen to me, though it might be crossed. My understanding is this sort of thing happens, since it's a pollinated plant. It's challenging to keep the seed pure.
It could also be an off-type; a genetic variant present in the genome of the particular variety but expressed in a few individuals.
