Quantity: 

This is a special variety of corn, bred for Baby Corn production, the plants tend to produce many more ears per plant than normal sweet corn varieties. However, many common corn varieties will also produce quality baby corn. Harvest the ears when they are best for baby corn which is about bite size: 5cm to 10cm long and 1cm to 2cm in diameter at the base, or butt end. To meet this criteria, harvest ears 1 to 3 days after silks become visible. Harvest baby corn every 23 days. At this early stage of ear development, the ear can grow very quickly, becoming too large in only 45 days! Don't forget that if you leave them they will grow into full size sweet corn but probably not the best you could grow!

Quantity: 

Bloody Butcher is truly a fabulous heirloom corn with blood-red kernels in gorgeous wine-red husks. This is a long season corn, and bears 8-12 inch ears on tall 10 foot stalks. The immature ears can be eaten like sweet corn, but the mature corn can be ground for an exquisite red corn flour or used for decoration. It has quite good drought tolerance but will need to be raised early in pots before planting out in late May/June to give them a head start on the weather.
