Where Did Corn Originally Come From?

Answer

With no records of corn being grown or eaten in England before 1942 when Columbus discovered America, it is believed that corn was only grown in the Americas. It is believed that Indians first grew corn in the highlands of Mexico and, as they migrated, took the corn with them. After the discovery of the Americas, Columbus took corn back to Europe with him and the new settlers were taught to plant and grow corn from the Indian natives.
