Baby Corn 15 seeds 
This is a special variety of sweetcorn, bred for Baby Corn production, the plants tend to produce many more ears per plant than normal sweet corn varieties. However, many common corn varieties will also produce quality baby corn. Harvest the ears when they are best for baby corn which is about bite size: 5cm to 10cm long and 1cm to 2cm in diameter at the base, or butt end. To meet this criteria, harvest ears 1 to 3 days after silks become visible. Harvest baby corn every 2–3 days. At this early stage of ear development, the ear can grow very quickly, becoming too large in only 4–5 days! Don't forget that if you leave them they will grow into full size sweetcorn but probably not the best you could grow!

Red Sweet Corn  15 seeds

Sweet Corn Bloody Butcher is truly a fabulous heirloom corn with blood-red kernels in gorgeous wine-red husks. This is a long season corn, and bears 8-12 inch ears on tall 10 foot stalks. The immature ears can be eaten like sweet corn, but the mature corn can be ground for an exquisite red corn flour or used for decoration. It has quite good drought tolerance but will need to be raised early in pots before planting out in late May/June to give them a head start on the weather.

Red Sweet Corn 16 seeds

A new exciting Sweet Corn from the USA with brilliantly coloured kernels in shades of red/white and purple.  Suitable for cooler climates like the UK it has high yields from stocky short plants.  The bonus is the beautiful ornamental red stalks, red husks and even the male flowers are red tinted. A delicious early sweet corn that is excellent for eating fresh from the cob, but also good for drying and grinding to make traditional corn flour.

I was first alerted to this new corn by a customer, Duncan Meyers who had one growing amongst his Bloody Butcher plants that led to finding a true seed source.

Indian Blue Corn  15 seeds 

Sweet Corn Hopi Blue is an unusual sweet corn developed by the Hopi Indians renowned for its sweet and distinctive blue cornmeal. Excellent for eating fresh while the kernels are tender just as they start to turn from white to blue, but used dry for blue corn chips, blue flour etc. Also used for decoration. Bushy 5 foot plants produce 7 inch ears and are quite nutritious. What upsets me most is that they are really delicious but all of our own trial crops have to be turned into seed for resale and my wife won't let me eat them!!
