Description

Corn - Bloody Butcher - Zea mays

Tender Annual Heirloom. While records about this corn only go back to the 19th century, it is thought to be a Virginia dent corn native to the continent. Kernels are dark red and black, with solid corn flavor. Each stalk produces 2-6 ears, about 8"-12" long. Pick the ears young to roast them, or dry the ears to grind them into cornmeal.

Did You Know? Eighty-seven percent of U.S. corn is grown using only natural rainfall for water.

Soil & Water: Corn is a heavy feeder requiring high amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK). Its weak and shallow root system likes loose soil with a high compost content. A drought tolerant corn.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds directly outdoors 1 week after the last frost. You can start earlier by using black or green plastic mulches and floating row covers to obtain optimum conditions. Plant in blocks rather than rows to ensure good germination. To prevent cross-pollination, plant different varieties at least 500' apart.

Harvesting & Storage: For dry corn, harvest when husks are completely dry. To finish the drying process, husk the ears and spread them in a dry, well-ventilated area. Store kernels on the cob, or shuck and store kernels.
