Festival is all ears -- and more 


Zellwood corn is famed for its sweetness, but like any other variety of corn, it has a short shelf life for peak flavor. As soon as it's picked, the natural sugars begin converting into starch.

Ears of Zellwood corn stacked in the supermarket might look like they're at the peak of ripeness. But the difference between them and the ones that are fresh-picked and promptly roasted, grilled or boiled is unmistakable. Taste the proof at the upcoming Zellwood Corn Festival, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. May 20-21 at 4253 Ponkan Road in Zellwood.

The 27th annual event kicks off fresh corn season. Admission includes country-music concerts, craft shows, a ham dinner and all-you-can-eat corn. Tickets are $11 in advance or $14 at the gate for adults ($4-$5 for ages 5-12). For a list of ticket outlets and directions, visit the website, or call (407) 886-0014.
