Baby corn is eaten in its entirety and has a crisp texture and a subtle, slightly sweet corn flavor. Fresh baby corn is easy to grow, the tiny ears are simply immature ears harvested from regular-sized corn plants. Specialty cultivars are available for baby corn production, but baby corn can be harvested from most common corn cultivars. Baby corn is a delicious locally produced treat to eat raw or cooked in many recipes.
This publication describes how to select a cultivar, plant, grow and harvest baby corn.
