Are we talking about an animal or a person?
If an animal, then I would say: He can eat a stalk of corn in seven minutes.
If a person, then I would say: He can eat an ear of corn in seven minutes.

Am I missing something here?
What kind of animal would eat a whole stalk of corn? And what is a shead? Comb and hedge have nothing to do with corn. Vincent, could you please explain what you mean?

Hi,

With 'comb', perhaps Vincent is thinking of 'a cob of corn'?

ie corn on the cob.

Thank you, I didn't know the answer. I found it in an exercise book.

Pls : sorry, typing error, sheaf.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Well, I had never heard of a sheaf of corn, but I googled it and apparently it is a big bundle of stalks (like a sheaf of wheat, which I had heard of). So maybe something like an elephant could eat a stalk of corn or a sheaf of corn. The other words, as far as I know, do not apply to corn, unless "comb" is some variant of "cob." It's a pretty strange question.

The usual unit of corn that people eat is "an ear of corn." And apparently the word "ear" for corn has nothing to do with the ear we hear with; it has a completely different origin. Of course that doesn't stop people from making puns.

Why should you never tell a secret on a farm? Because the corn has ears.
