I noticed this ear while it was growing....and upon harvest, it is a hermaphrodite. The hermaphrodite is part of the Navajo creation myth.

As I remember, a few years back there was an atempt by seed corn breeders to develop a corn that would produce seeds on the tassel.
They were successful as I recall but it was not productive enough for comercial use.
