Bloody Butcher Corn
Zea mays 'Bloody Butcher'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Appalachian favourite from at least 1845 with beautiful maroon and dark red ears. A dent corn, it is mainly dried and ground into cornmeal for making cornbread and the southern specialty, cornpone, a type of cornbread made in a skillet. It is good on the cob too when young, and can be fried or roasted. It has a very fine corn flavour which is why it remains a favourite today. Plants are tall, up to 4m/12ft, and each stalk produces two large ears with about half a pound of kernels each. 100-110 days.
