One of my favorite things to grow and eat. Nichols nursery, I don't have the address right here, but they have a web site. I love the stuff and put it in several different things. I'm going to try it in veggie lasagna next.

It's easy to grow, and you can plant it very close together.

This should be good.

I also saw it in my Gurney's Seed and Nursery catalog. It's item number 14416 for a seed packet, priced at $2.11 for approx 100 seeds. Their telephone number is 1-800-824-6400. They also sell it in larger quantities. Best to ya !

I grew some last year, and it was very good. From memory I am going to say it was from "Seeds of Change" (pretty sure) and was called "Chires Baby" (100% sure). Each stalk produced 3 to 5 ears, and it is picked just after silks appear. I was a little late on some, and it was a bit crunchy and tough, as I had frozen it. I then took the frozen ears and canned them, and the high temps thereof tenderized them to where they were very nice indeed. If you can't find them, e- mail me and I will verify sources. GL!

Try a search for baby corn seed on the internet. I believe the gurney's offers a baby corn that produces up to 40 ears! Check around, becasue if you can get more for your space, I'd go for it.
