BLOODY BUTCHER CORN (HEIRLOOM) (120 days)

Germ 7-14 days
Heirloom 1845
A stunning, decorative and useful corn variety growing 12’ tall with 8-12” reddish maroon ears. Intensely colorful kernels can be ground into flour and cornmeal while still being edible when young and eaten like a sweet corn. 100 seeds

PLANTING:

Outdoors- 1” deep, late spring when soil is at least 60 degrees. Thin to 8-12” apart. Plant in blocks (4-5 rows, 24-36” apart) to help with pollination.

Harvest- Ready to be picked approximately 2 1/2 to 3 weeks after silks appear. Silks become dry and brown. The kernels should be plump and full. Test by pressing your fingertip into a kernel, looking for a “milky’ appearance. Best picked in the morning and refrigerate/cool right away.

Tips- Keep weeded and well watered. Plant in fertile soil and add a high-nitrogen organic fertilizer every few weeks until tassels form.

    So far, so good!

    We sowed this corn three weeks ago in a small bed we're doing 3 Sisters in. Germination was around 85%. Stalks appear healthy and strong. Will update at summer's end, but so far we're pleased with this product!

    Bloody Butcher Corn

    Very easy to grow. Great taste when fried in an iron skillet. Stays a darker color, but don't let that stop you from enjoying the great flavor.
