Bloody Butcher Corn

Very old heirloom variety of dent corn. This corn produces blood red kernels hence the name Bloody Butcher. Our strain originated from an old farm in Colorado years ago. It has been grown since the middle 1800s. Tall stalks produce anywhere from 2 to 3 ears. Great variety to add some color to your garden.

How to Save Seeds

Corn will cross pollinate with other corn varieties and readily. Therefore it is recommended to separate by at least 1 mile. Let seeds dry in stalk but don't tarry in fact make sure to harvest as soon as dry. Also make sure to collect from at least 100 separate corn plants to have a healthy batch of corn next year. Rub corn off cobs when dry and store.
