|'Bloody Butcher' is generally ready for harvest within 110 days. This is an heirloom variety, with red-husks and blood-red kernels. The plants are 10 feet high with two 8 inch cobs on each stalk. The immature ears can be eaten as sweet corn. Resistant to lodging and drought tolerant. Originally domesticated by Mesoamericans, it is a staple food with many other traditional uses. Home gardeners love to grow corn, and there are many varieties suited to different climates. Plant seeds 1 inch deep in rows or clumps, two weeks after the last frost date. Corn needs rich soil, full sun and adequate moisture to produce good ears. It is wind pollinated, so if you want to save seed, you will need to either stagger the planting time of different varieties, or plant them 1/4 mile apart. Water deeply.
