Growing & harvesting

Mini corn is about 9 to 10 cm long and has a diameter of 1,5 cm. Mini corn is grown in the region of Nakhon Pathom on a field of 40 hectares. 50 to 55 days after sowing the mini corn, they can be harvested. After harvesting, the corn are cleaned, sorted by size & quality, and packaged in the packinghouse. After that, the mini corn are transported by air to the Netherlands. There is no taste advantage in growing a sweet corn variety over field corn, since the corn are harvested before the sugars have an opportunity to accumulate. Corn quality, more than yield, should be the primary objective when selecting a variety. Small kernel size, straight row kernel alignment and tapered tips are preferred characteristics for high quality baby corn.
