Mini Corn

Sweet taste with a crunchy bite

Mini Corn - Product picture

With its length of only 9 to 10 centimetres, mini corn is a real eye-catcher in the mini vegetable range. Mini corn is actually the unripe cob of the corn plant, both field and sweet corn.

The vegetable is harvested very early: 1 to 2 days after the corn leaf appears, when the corn is still deliciously tender, with a subtle sweet taste and a crunchy bite.

Growing and harvesting

At the grower's

The small variety of regular corn on the cob originates from Southeast Asia, where these mini vegetables are grown on a large surface area, sometimes up to 40 hectares. Mini corn grows very quickly in the warm climate. Growers can start harvesting the cobs after just 50 to 55 days. The fruits are then 9 to 10 cm long, with a diameter of 1.5 cm. High-quality mini corn is recognisable by its small grain size, straight shape and tapered tip.

The harvest goes to a packing station to be cleaned on site, sorted by size and packed, ready for the journey to the Netherlands. Striking detail: there are mini versions of field and sweet corn, but you cannot taste the difference, because mini corn is harvested before the sugars develop.

Recipes & preparation tips

Mini corn is a vegetable that tickles the imagination of many enthusiastic amateur and professional chefs. They use the small cobs in pasta with green asparagus, for example. Mini corn is also very suitable for grilling on a skewer, or as a crispy ingredient in a stir-fry, another delicacy you can find on the EAT ME website. Rinsing is all the preparation required.
