Corn in the Philippines

Do you like corn?  I do.  I especially enjoy a really fresh piece of corn on the cob.  There is just nothing quite as good as a fresh piece of juicy and sweet corn on the cob!  Problem is that it can be quite hard to find a decent piece of corn here in the Philippines.

The Philippines is really an agricultural Country, so you would expect that you could find some good corn here, but the fact is that it is very hard to find such.  Most of the corn that is grown in the Philippines is feed corn, used to feed animals.  It is very dry and hard.  Not delicious to eat.

I can remember when we lived in the States, we lived in an area where there was a lot of farming, and many corn farms.  During the summer months, you could go straight out to the farm field and buy corn from the farmer!  It was always fresh and delicious.  It was also cheap!  Usually, in season, we could get 10 or 12 ears of corn for just $1.00.  During summer months when corn was in season, Feyma, the kids and I would have corn almost every night.  It was a treat.  Our oldest son, when he was a baby, loved corn!  From the time he was old enough to eat a piece of corn, he always would ask for it.  If Feyma or I would even mention the word “corn” he would get all excited!  It got so bad, that Feyma and I would use a code word, we would say “yellow” to each other when we were talking about corn, to keep our young son from getting to excited!

Japanese Sweet Corn is available in Davao!

When we moved to the Philippines, though, we could not really find any corn on the cob in General Santos, where we lived when we first moved to the Philippines.  Feyma’s family had a farm out in the Province of Sarangani, so Feyma asked her Mama to get some corn on the cob for us.  Mama was so proud when she brought us a big bag of freshly picked corn on the cob!  Feyma cooked it.  When we all sat down at the table to eat, I took one bite and looked at Feyma.  I was worried that I may have broken a tooth biting into the hard dry corn!  Feyma looked back at me, I could tell she was about to laugh.  We just kept eating it, not wanting to insult Mama, who had gone to an extra effort to get the corn for us!

Well, after trying a few more sources for corn, we quickly decided that we would not be eating any more corn on the cob, it just was not very good.  Well, frankly, it was not good at all.

Nothing beats a good piece of sweet juicy corn!

Nothing beats a good piece of sweet juicy corn!

After we moved to Davao, though, once we lived here for a couple of years, one day I was out with a friend.  We were in the Buhangin area of Davao, and we saw a truck parked along the side of the road with a big sign that said:

Japanese Sweet Corn for Sale

I told my friend we should stop and buy some, although my expectations were not very good for the taste.  We both bought some.  It was P35 per kilo (2.2 pounds of corn on the cob for about $0.75), not bad.  When we went home, we had Feyma boil some up for us, and we all tried it.  Wow!  It was good!  It was juicy, and it was sweet!  Not quite as good as the sweet corn back in the States, but hey, it was good enough that we wanted more!

When my friend and I originally saw the truck along the roadside, we actually met the farmer who grew the corn.  He was a nice man, and very friendly.  Feyma and I went back and bought more corn from him, and spent some time talking with the farmer.  He told us that he hoped to be able to supply corn every day, and he told us a bit about his farm.  Very nice guy.

Well, here it is about 6 years later, and we are still buying corn regularly from this farmer!  And, his corn is still very good.  Now, instead of a pickup truck along the road, he actually has a little store at that same spot on the highway.  When the corn comes from the farm it’s not a little bit of corn in the back of the pickup truck either.  Yesterday, Feyma and I went to buy some corn, and the delivery truck came.  It was a very large truck with thousands of ears of corn in the back!  So, this farmer has really made it with his Japanese Sweet Corn!  It’s still P35/Kilo too, and probably even a little more delicious than it was back when we first started buying from him.

If you are in Davao, you can find this corn along Buhangin Road, along the south side of the road.  His store is about 750 meters from the Buhangin Underpass, toward the city.  I highly recommend this place if you like corn like I do!  Tell them that MindanaoBob told you about the place!

    Bob: Your right, nothing better than sweet corn on the cob, lightly buttered. The Dept of Agriculture here needs to encourage farmers, and assist in corn production but they are so involved with rice that corn takes a back seat.

  2. brian says

    What timing….Corn on the Cob on the menu tonite Bob…..bought from the corner farmer as well….being State side for now I miss the fresh philippine mango’s the most….best in the world !!

  3. maria says

    hi bob
    my husband and i love to eat shaven corn off the cob. maybe you can take a picture of the corn stand with the farmer.

  4. Paul T says

    Bob;
    I first ate the Japanese Sweet Corn in Japan, (makes sense)
    I have fond memories of New England Summer Sweet Corn, and other great corns I had in different parts of the states.
    The best by far was Zellwood Florida corn (Google it) they hold a festival every year and serve corn in ways you’ve never thought of.
    Here in the Subic once a year we get the Japanese Sweet Corn for a month or so, and I’ll eat it every day until its gone. Now I’m stuck with Birds-Eye Frozen sweet corn on the cob the rest of the year. It’s good, but the Japanese Sweet Corn is the best I’ve had in years.

    • says

      Hi Paul – Indeed, eating Japanese sweet corn in Japan is the way to go! :shock:

      Seriously, this is really good corn, and I am happy because it is not available 12 months of the year here in Davao. It is a rare day that you go there and there is no corn available!

      • Paul T says

        Bob;
        The corn (Japanese sweet corn) we get here is imported, I wish someone (not me) would grow it here. I’d be a loyal customer!

        • says

          Ah yes… somebody needs to start growing the stuff! How much do you pay for the imported stuff? Here, the price for locally grown, and picked the same day they sell it is P35/kilo.

          • Paul T says

            Bob;
            I don’t remember the cost, but it was dear. Nothing like the great price you’re paying, that’s for sure. Wanna’ ship some up north and we’ll split the profits? (lol)

            • says

              Ha ha… I don’t know how much we could make after paying to ship it up! Want me to ship some up for your personal consumption, though? I would do it for you.

    • Dan says

      Paul..you could aways have your wife get a load of sweet corn and blanch it and freeze it and last you all year untill the next time and then have her do it again….Her and Her Sister….would just love doing something like this for you!

      • Paul T says

        Dan;
        We’ve done that also, but the freezer is only so big. So I’ll make do with Birds-Eye frozen for awhile.

  5. Dan says

    Fun post Bob….why don’t people there grown their own sweet corn that love sweet corn? I would think seeds not be to hard to get? Or maybe they are…Like you said…to bad a lot of Fillipinos have not discovered sweet corn and plant some..bet they could sell all of it..so not I think I need some sweet corn….

    • says

      Hi Dan – It is not easy to get sweet corn seeds here. I suspect that this fellow got them directly from Japan. The corn here is really bad, and that is the seeds that you can get here.

      • bemboy says

        hi… organic sweetcorn is the best… sometimes when you see the sweetcorn how to grow… especially treated with carbofuran you will not eat that again…. tnx..

  6. Bill Dignan says

    Hi Bob, I will be visiting Legaspi City next month and then probably moving there after the new year. But you had mentioned all the yummy food like chicken Adobe. I was wondering if you could write an article about the street food in the P.I. I’m so excited to try it all!

    Thanks, Bill

  7. Neal in RI says

    Bob
    After years of being green with envy of you LIP now comes my turn to gloat a bit.
    Yesterday we had some Butter&Sugar corn that was excellent, now I looked at the market flyer and next week they will have Silver Queen corn on sale, thats the best corn its so crunchy and sweet. Im tryng to give you the vision of me with butter running down my chin with a few stray kernals stuck to my face.

    Why cant they grow the US kind of corn there do you need the seeds or is the growing conditions to hot too long?

    • says

      Hi Neal – I am not really sure why they can’t grow it here, but this Japanese corn comes fairly close. The thing I really miss are the sweet onions… like the Vidalias or Wala Wala onions!

      • Paul T says

        Neal;
        I have to trim my mustache prior to eating corn-on-the-cob with butter, as the butter collects on the upper lip (not to be confused with Bob’s web site).

  8. Neal in RI says

    Bob
    Yes you are right them sweet onions are great.
    The Outback Steakhouse make something they call a bloomin onion that they batter the sweet onions and fry them whole. They are great poluton when your tipping back a few beers.

  9. Jade says

    Bob,
    I agree with you that the the usual ears of corn that are sold in season are not of the sweet variety, more like animal feed in some cases. Sometimes we find a sweeter variety and it is delicious. Thanks fot telling us of the name so maybe next time I will know what to ask for.

    In Wisconsin in the ’70′s there was a variety of sweet corn sold that was SO sweet that it was nauseating, REALLY, like candied corn, it was only available for a year or two. After that only the ‘normal’ variety was available. I’d like to try again a cob of two of this super sweet corn again just to reassure myself that I was not dreaming. Maybe it could be hybrid with another variety to produce an intermediate variety.
    On the other hand however that super sweet variety could become the basis of a very lucrative business in the sweets loving Philippines. ha ha …
    The IRRI (International Rice Research Institute) in Los Banos, Laguna is about 10km from where we live. There may be a branch of that excellent organization that does research on hybrid corn variants which are compatible with the Philippine climate.
    Jade

    • says

      Hi Jade – Ha ha… interesting about that “super sweet” corn that you had in the 70′s. I have not heard about that.

      I don’t think the IRRI gets involved in corn at all… they just concentrate on rice, I believe.

  10. says

    First things first, Paul, is the Outback Steakhouse in Manila about the same as the similarly named chain in the US that Neal is talking about? If so, let’s go! I’m in the mood. You drive here to our house along the way and I’ll take care of the Manila traffic.

    Now, to the real reason I commented. Bob, and others know that I get dozens of queries all the time about starting a business in the Philippines … and almost everyone talks about the same copycat ideas of a sari-sari store or an Internet cafe.

    I really think folks considering a business ought to think more along agricultural lines.

    Examples.

    Around Manila there are a couple large operations now that supply major hotel and restaurant chains with table vegetables. (hint, they all started small). What’s unique about them? Foreigner owned/managed. They saw a need and filled it without listening to the usual Philippine “claptrap” that comes out of even expert mouths at the Department of Agriculture about what crops “can’t be sold” in the Philippines.

    In the Subic area there is a huge hydroponic greenhouse operation run by a Taiwanese company which serves restaurants all over central Luzon (hint, it also started small). I guess becuase the owner speaks Chinese he wasn’t able to hear the “it won’t work here” advice he was given by dozens of Philippine “experts”.

    Corn will grow wonderfully here … it’s a staple in some areas of the Visayas … but someone has to take a hoe in their hand and grow it … and has been said here already, corn is a lot easier to grow than rice.

    See also Bob’s recent nuclear hot dog article where he mentions American sausages and also kindly links to one of my posts, same subject.

    There’s money in food. Two Sundays ago we were driving back from the airport along the C-5, a major Manila circumfrential road. There were so many vendors selling corn at the side of the road, they were causing minor traffic jams. We had to naviaget for blocks before we found a vendor’s stand weith room enouygh to pull over and buy some.

    It sure wasn’t cars full of forigners who were stopping at all the other stands. The vendors are smart enough to buy and sell at a price that is fair and still earnes htem an honest living … but muich of this corn is imported … not grown locally becuase “Filipinos don’t buy this product”.

    If the experts saw the Filipinos lined up to buy corn they wouldn’t say that, but I think they just sit in their offices and recite their “it can’t be done here” mantra.

    • says

      Hi Dave – You have some great thoughts there, and I heartily agree. In fact, the Philippines has such a huge rice problem that if corn would be encouraged, perhaps it would gain a bit of a foothold and replace a bit of the rice demand. I have no illusions of Filipinos giving up rice for corn, but as you said, corn is strong in parts of the Visayas. In parts of Cebu Island, people prefer to eat corn grits rather than rice. It was a habit they picked up during WW2 when rice was hard to come by, and it stuck. I do believe that there are huge agricultural opportunities here in the Philippines. Do you mind my asking… how much was the imported corn? We pay P35/kilo for locally grown sweet corn here in Davao.

      • Paul T says

        Dave;
        Look up the Outback Steakhouse on the WEB. If you like sausage make your own it’s easy. I could do a steak!

        Farmer’s Breakfast Sausage

        2 Kilo ground pork
        4-teaspoon salt 1-1/2 teaspoon white pepper (or black)
        1-Teaspoon nutmeg 1-Tablespoon thyme (Big Spoon)
        2-1/2 Teaspoon Sage
        3-teaspoon ginger
        1-cup ICE water
        2-tablespoon crushed red peppers (pizza peppers) If you like hot

        Mix all ingredients well, cover and chill in Ref. For 12 hours.
        Mix again next day (or the end of 12 hours)
        Form into patties or leave in bulk, (ice bags work well for bulk)

        • says

          Hi Paul – A man of truth you are, my friend. Feyma has been making her own sausage for years now! If her breakfast sausage gets any better I’m gonna start calling her “Jimmy Dean”. :lol:

        • steve says

          Paul,
          Thanks for the reciep! I am going to have to try it!
          I want to do a Low Country Boil for a meal when I visit next. I just need to find some good sausage links and some good corn. I am sure I will be able to find most of the other ingredients there. I am bringing my own Old Bay Crab Boil with me as I am sure it is not available in our location. Looking to have a lip (not to be confused with Bob’s web site) smacking good time if I find the right corn and sausage!

          • Paul Thompson says

            Steve;
            I made 2 kilo’s every month for the last 12 years, as sausage (good sausage) is hard to find here, as there is no demand unless it’s sweet (gag). I have no trouble getting the ingredients here.

  11. Tony says

    Corn in no problem at all where I live, near the Tagaytay road. I just wish I could find some good sized spuds here that didn’t cost a fortune!

    • says

      Hi Tony – in the past year or so, we are starting to see big potatoes in the Davao area, rivaling the size of nice Idaho spuds in the States. The price is similar to the small local potatoes too.

  12. says

    Hi Bob, I haven’t seen sweet corn, but I still enjoy the small local roasted ears or “anagon” popular in the Visayas region. Ground corn is a real staple in the Visayas region, it used to be looked upon as daily fare for the poorest Visayans, but now it has gained a better status, and even other parts of the Philippines are catching on that white corn grits are a healthier and delicious alternative to white rice.
    Paired up in chicken soup with kalamunggay and you’ve got a really delicious “superfood” dish.

  13. Paul says

    Hi Bob – I was starting to smirk a little when reading the first few paragraphs. Then, when finishing the article, I had a strange feeling of satisfaction as well as a cheer for the happy ending.

    Being born and growing up in a big corn producing area – sweet corn (yellow, white and mixed), feed corn and popcorn – going without in the Philippines was always a concern at first. Was I ever surprised decades ago to find out that my new home grows corn after the rainy season rice harvest. Been enjoying Japanese Sweet Corn and some interesting and very tasty hybrids over those past years. Had a few ears before going on vacation, too.

    Guess that’s another item in the plus column for the province in the extreme northwest. Centuries of trade with Japan, China, Formosa, Vietnam, etc. pays off in different foods as well as other trade commodities.
    ;)

    • says

      Hi Paul, I’ve been reading lately that the growing and consumption of white corn has greatly increased in your region, along with farmers rotating their garlic crops with corn. That’s good to hear.

  14. Paul says

    Forgot to mention – in the area where we are staying, there’s a sweet corn festival this coming weekend. Look for me up to my ears in ears.
    :lol:

  15. says

    Ah Sweetcorn, how I fancy one right now. We’ve been eating a lot of it lately, cooked on the Barbie. Salt and pepper, smeared with butter, wrapped with foil and tossed on the barbie. Since coming to Oz, we have been eating lots of steak from the barbecue (served just under well done and ideally with a simvastatin sauce), and by the time that’s consumed, the corn is ready. Mmmm.

    • says

      OMG, Jim! I can’t believe you ruin a good steak by cooking it to death! For me… rare, or medium rare at the worst! :lol:

      We don’t put foil on the corn when we throw it on the que. If it goes a bit brown in places… well, that’s just part of the good taste! :wink:

      • says

        Ah Bob, I always think that a good vet could bring a rare steak back to life. In South Africa, I watched guys eating steak that they considered cooked when it had been slapped on the backside and laid out in the sun for a couple of hours. The blood used to run down their chins at times. I don’t eat Sushi either; I guess it’s just that I am a big Jessie, and I prefer my food cooked!

        :-)

  16. says

    Bob,

    I agree with you. I did not enjoy eating my first ear of filipino-grown corn which I had while visiting my girlfriend and her family in Ozamiz back in December 2009. It was also my last. Maybe upon my next visit to Ozamiz I’ll detour to Davao to pick-up some sweet corn. Plus, stop into meet you and Feyma in person.

  17. Ken Lovell says

    I get corn on the cob in the local Malabon market from time to time. It’s sweet and reasonably fresh – don’t know where it comes from. I used to grow my own in Australia so anything more than a few hours old doesn’t impress me much, but it’s not bad. For some reason the stallholders usually strip the cobs, which means it gets stale quite quickly. Any time I see some still in the sheath or whatever it’s called, I buy a handful. And it’s nice to see most have a grub in the tip, meaning they haven’t been grown with too much pesticide.

    • says

      Hi Ken – Nice to hear from you. Yes, fresh corn is the best! That’s why I like this farmer in Davao, as he picks his corn and sells it within 30 minutes or so!

    BoB,
    I wonder if I brought some sweet corn seeds that grow in Florida would they do well in the Philippines I wonder

      • Paul T says

        Mike;
        Take 441 north out of Orlando (Orange Blossom Trail or sometimes called the OBT) 30 miles until you hit Zellwood Florida. It has been proven to be some of the best sweet corn in the U.S.A. Every May they hold a big festival and antique wooded boat show there and the corn is wonderful. It’s a cheap weekend and not that far from J-ville. If you want seeds those are the seeds you want.

        • Michels5098 says

          Senior;
          Duly Noted we’ll take a trip there and hopeully I can bring some of those seed to the Philippines in a BB box. If not it will be silver queen.

  19. says

    We’ve been eating what my wife calls “sticky corn” in our rural province of Guimaras the past few weeks, Bob. My wife grows it in our backyard. Though it cannot compare to the sweet corn I used to devour back in Illinois, it’s not too bad. But our laundry lady brought over some corn from her daughter’s place that was so hard, that yes, it almost breaks your teeth. Terrible! I’ve eaten some Japanese sweet corn at our SM in nearby Iloilo, but I don’t think it can compare to the fresh supply you get.

  20. Joe says

    If anyone is interested in growing corn,try the East-West Seed Company. Or,Visca State University in Leyte. You should be able to get seeds from both these sources.

  21. Jawz says

    Hey Bob, I seen that Japanese sweet corn shop :D

    Before I came to Phils, I remember back in ‘early ’08 one of my online Davao friends nicknamed me ‘sweet corn’ – cause my blond hair. I didn’t know what the term sweet corn meant. I remember, at home, my lil sis LOVED corn. We’d have yellow corn and creamed corn in the cabinet all the time. Of course popcorn was kept too. Not to mention grits and cornmeal for cornbread. Oh, and corn tortillas and cornchips and sometimes corn on the cob. Even once our pig pooped corn near the barn and a stalk grew. I ate the corn off of it… it was tiny. Tasted like what I found in canned Chinese chopped suey.

    Anyways, point is, I never heard of sweetcorn till I came here. I only had yellow corn, and seen the corn variety in Thanksgiving photos. I thought sweet corn just meant normal yellow corn. I found I was wrong when I tried sweet corn flavored junk food. LOL!

    • says

      Hi Jawz – Maybe it is a regional thing, but in the western USA where I come from, “sweet corn” is a well known thing, so it is not just here in the Philippines. Since you know where the corn shop is (it’s actually not really a shop, just a stand along the roadside), stop and buy some! I’m sure you will enjoy it!

  22. says

    When in Manila, specifically Malibay Pasay, I eat more corn than any human probably should. I buy it from the street vendors on the corner of 7-11 in Malibay Pasay and I have to say…it is delicious!!

    It is very well “cooked” and they can smother it with butter or whatever you want. Gosh, I miss that so much right now.

    The corn on the cob that I have had has been very good, but honestly I think I might even like hard bad corn.

    Getting off the subject a bit but for some reason talking about vegetables and that got me thinking of Jack Fruit. I think that is what it is called. I could eat that stuff all day!

    Corn on the cob and jack fruit…hmmmm, life would be good. LOL.

  23. John Miele says

    Bob: I mentioned this article to Rebecca… Up in Cagayan, there are a few areas where the Japanese corn is grown. I asked her why more farmers don’t grow it, and the answer is “subsidy”. The seed for the native corn is either free or greatly reduced for farmers through the Department of Agriculture. This is also the case with many breeds of rice (And why you don’t see Filipino Jasmine rice). Part of “official” government policy is trying to make the country feed itself, so species that produce high yields tend to be what is distributed, rather than what may taste good. If the farmers want to grow sweet corn, they buy the seeds themselves.

    • says

      Hi John – That does make sense, however, stuff that tastes good usually sells for a higher price, and makes more profit. I suppose, though, when you are a farmer and have no money, the cost of the seeds is a major consideration.

  24. Henry says

    Bob – Great article! Remember I had asked you about corn on the cob when I was there? You told me of a place to try, but time was not on my side. I wanted to check out this place, but Jeanette was too tired to venture further so we went home. While shopping along San Pedro, we came to a street vendor selling corn on the cob. We purchased half a dozen ears of corn and went home. Hoping for a delicious treat of corn on the cob didn’t materialize. It was hard and lacked flavor. For my next visit, I’ll seek out this vendor and tell him you sent me. :-)

    hi all,

    what sweetcorn variety do you have there in davao? just curious…

    im jasper from bacolod. maybe i can learn a trick or two from u all regarding sweetcorn

    thanks

        Hi Sir Bob;

        I live here in davao. recently I and my wife clariz developed a piece of land in makilala and we wanted to plant a portion of it with sweet corn. It’s nice that I have read your item. Now, I have an Idea. thanks!

        • says

          That’s great to hear, Dani! Good luck on the farming, and I hope your sweet corn is wonderful! In fact, when you have your first harvest, let me try it, and if I like it, I will give you a plug here on the site! Take care.

          • Dani says

            Thanks!Yes! of course I’ll be glad to let you taste my first harvest soon. I’m a little bit worried because I cannot find a sweet corn seedlings at this time. I’m planing to go to the store that you have mentioned in Buhangin. What we have at this time is an ” anagon” which my wife bought at SM supermarket the other day. We’ll just it to dry and see if it could be used for seedlings.

  26. Tony Breta says

    …hi Bob…excellent thread on corn…..just wondering if you have gone further and research which corn is ideal to farm for the purpose of making corn flour to introduce corn TORTILLA
    making in the poor household in remote areas in the Philippines. I’m glad to come across your blog to learn more about corn. Plan to farm in the northern Luzon area. Thanks for the info.

    • says

      Hi Tony – Sorry, but I have done no further research. All of the information I know about corn in the Philippines is included in the article.

      Personally, I doubt that tortillas would go over very big in the Philippines, but I wish you the best of luck.

  27. Robert says

    Another business worth considering is contract growing for large poultry/swine integrators like San Miguel, Vitarich, Foremost Farms etc. They usually supply the feeds, chicks, piglets, vaccination, technology and equipment and the proprietor/investor supplies the land and labor. The growers usually sell a certain portion of their output at an agreed price stipulated in the contract. Foreigners can lease the land from Filipinos who don’t have the capital to utilize/develop it for productive use.

    Hello Bob!! This Tansyong From Philippines, your post is very informative. I used your photo in my blog w/ credits and a part of your Post. !

    Because of your Blog, I was able to get more info about Corn in Philippines, More Power

  30. Karlo Gem says

    hi MindanaoBob! I am Karlo. I found your site by accident because I am doing my research now about corn and its post-harvest production process (corn sheller). I am actually making a project proposal for this. Anyways, i really do agree with what you said that finding a quality corn in the Philippines is hard. Most especially nowadays where corn farmers are slowly converting their corn fields into rice fields. Just like in the situation here in Agusan del Sur (I am temporarily assigned here). The area here is actually an agricultural area but corn farms here are nowhere to found! only 15,800 hectares are corn farms out of 890,500 hectares land area of the entire Agusan del Sur.
    And by the way, why don’t you try next time white corn as substitute for rice? you can find that in your local market (palengke). the one that is ready for cooking.
    More powers on you and your site MindanaoBob!
