There is some corn grown in France for sale "on the cob" - but this year was horrible for corn as it is. Corn needs hot weather, and lots of sun and water. And much of the corn crop in France is grown for animal feed anyhow - like where the animals consume the corn and the cob in total. It's not a variety that is suited for corn on the cob, or actually not great for human consumption in general. (It's not "tender" like what you want for corn on the cob.)Another culinary question.
We do not seem to be able find any corn on the cob in France, strange as the fields are full of it - or were earlier on. Do the French not eat it?
