Organically grown Baby corn (also known as devil corn, young corn, mini corn, or cornlettes) is a cereal grain taken from corn (maize) harvested early while the stalks are still small and immature. It typically is eaten whole – cob included – in contrast to mature corn, whose cob is too tough for human consumption. It is eaten both raw and cooked. Baby corn are most common in Chinese cuisine. In Thai language cookbooks, it is referred to as candle corn.
