Deano. Depends on the variety. If you bought heirloom / non hybrid seeds then yes. If you went to the supermarket/nursery and bought a packet of sweetcorn seeds then probably not. Also depends on how many varieties you planted and how far apart (including your neighbours). Corn is promiscuous, varieties will cross very easily.
