Siam ruby queen corn is a sweet corn variety with large, uniform fruits, originating from Thailand, imported to Vietnam by farmers and grown in the Southeast region along with the Mekong Delta. And now we have brought it from Maison Chance to plant in Dak Nong, fertile land with fresh air.
The shape of Siam ruby queen corn looks like American corn, the corn that we often see in the market and in the supermarket, but the seeds inside the corn are dark red and mixed with some purple seeds. The outer shell is usually green, but the deeper the shell goes inside, the dark purple-red veins appear. Corn silk is red.
The simple difference that makes it easy to distinguish the real Siam ruby queen corn from the fake is that when we break the corn in half, the siam queen corn will have a hollow intestine and 1 plus “beard” in the middle of the core.

Siam ruby queen corn has a unique and strange way of eating because this is the first corn variety in Vietnam that we can eat raw because it does not need to be steamed or boiled like other corn varieties. When we eat it raw, we just need to wash it, it will be more delicious when it is cooled, soaked in ice and when eaten, we will feel the inherent aroma, sweetness and freshness of siam ruby queen corn.
In addition, we can still use corn to process into many other dishes such as salads, soups, teas and smoothies….
However, eating raw siam ruby queen corn will preserve the inherent flavor and nutrient content of the corn without losing it compared to cooking it before eating. We can also only steam for less than 20 minutes or bake in the microwave for 3-4 minutes before using, to avoid overcooking because it will reduce the nutrients in siam queen corn!
