Question: Are corn considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Corn is classified as a monocot.
Why Are Corn Considered Monocots/Dicots?
Corn seeds only produce a single sprout leaf, and this makes them a monocot. ‘Mono’ means one, and ‘cot’ is short for cotyledon (embryonic leaf). Monocot literally translates into everyday language as a single baby leaf.
