Bloody Butcher is an heirloom dent-type corn that has been grown in the United States for many years. This heirloom ornamental corn has an unusual and eye-appealing blood red kernel color with darker kernels intermixed. The ears are quite large, varying from 8 to 12" in length. Plants grow 9-10' tall with 1-2 ears per plant.

Bloody Butcher corn can be harvested during the milk stage for roasting and eaten like sweet corn. This vegetable has a rich, nutty flavor that complements many meals. Used as a dent flour variety for years, it makes an outstanding ornamental corn. Dent corn also has a high starch content and can be used as cornmeal or flour when dried.

The distinct coloring makes this corn work great for autumn decorations. Bloody Butcher corn seeds need to be planted after the ground has warmed. Successive planting can be made throughout early summer, but the best practice is to plant a few varieties of different maturities throughout the season.
