Bloody Butcher Sweet Corn is an intense blood-red colored dent corn with darker burgundy kernels intermixed. Its intense corn flavor made this "Jimmy Red" corn a popular choice for moonshine and bourbon! This corn starts white then 15 days later the cobs are shot with splotches of reds and oranges, resembling a butcher's bloody apron! Eat this corn fresh in the milk stage or wait until the corn is fully dried and red. Grind for cornmeal or use for decorations for your home, barn, or business!
Corn is one of the plants grown in the traditional Native American vegetable technique called the Three Sisters. The other two plants in the Three Sisters are beans and squash, and each has its role in the companion planting tradition. Corn serves as a support for the vining beans. Squash served as a ground cover, preventing weeds from growing. Beans provided natural fertilizer for all.
