What does red corn mean?
Likewise, people ask, what does it mean when corn turns red?
Corn plants in many fields are turning red and that is not a good sign. The red color is coming from a build-up of sugar in the leaves and stalks. The build-up of sugar is a result of too few kernels being developed on the ears. Heat stress during pollination was the primary culprit of red leaves in these fields.
Subsequently, question is, why is the silk on my corn red? Sometimes it could also be a sign of it being ready to harvest. He said as long as the corn looks healthy and hydrated it's fine to eat, he has seen red and purple silk and other than it being easier to find loose silk, it tastes no different.
Also, is Red Corn natural?
Red corn is a type of sweet corn. Its ears are wrapped in tightly bound lime hued husks with silks and a tassel that extend out from the tip. Red corn's kernels are stained with hues of ruby brick red and creamy pink tones, depending on specific variety.
