Corn in their husk

Unripe corn

I have just had a look a my corn plants as some look rather brown and reddish colour. I have done a few searches apparently they were due to not enough watering, too much direct sunlight or not the right soil. I am growing them by the fence on the borders. I am growing Fiesta and Mirrai Picnic F1 variety in the garden. I have harvested them today, one look poorly/unripe, two look unripe and one looking all right. Last year I had none ripen as they tend to take long time to ripen in London’s climate. Hopefully it will be better luck for me next year.

Corn plant which foliage that turned reddish brown in colour
