I agree with Denise, about your photos, but agree with you about eating it. Yuck!!
I have never seen this horrible looking fungus before. You do have very nice pictures of a yucky subject.
I would have done the same thing! I ahve never seen or heard of this before. We grew corn when I was growing up. Never. Lucky me! Until todya. Hope I don't have nightmares now. lol
Biiiiirk! But maybe, when it is cooked, it looks better and is good to eat?..Well, I'll let someone else try, and tell me about it..Ü
It looks horrible but interesting.I have never seen it here.
Great photos. But...YUCK! I love Mexican food and now I'll think of this when I go to take that first bite (lol).
Gross!I hope you find some good corn to eat!
You have got to be kidding!!! They eat this? Oh no, not in a million years. Yuck!!
Never seen it before. Wonder how the Mexicans prepare it.
Wow a couple of great photos, but I'm with you I would never even think of eating it. It looks so creepy - I would have screamed too!!
Nice shots, but no thanks.
Okay, that is just gross, but it does make an interesting photo. Love your new blog layout - cool!
Sure it looks yucky, but what a bunch of wimps commenting! Would you think a truffle would be so tasty? Or what about monkfish? Or how about an oyster?Don't turn up you nose on something before you try it! Or at least sell it. In Mexican markets, it gets upwards of $20/pound!
I have seen this in corn we have grown! Yuck! I'd never eat it!!Junie
Hi Dot, That fungus stuff made me shiver... NO thank you... Don't want any of that!!!!!We're home from a great vacation.. I'll post in the morning.Hugs,Betsy
I would love to know what the Mexicans use it for...great pictures that I would not have thought to take.
Frightening... I hope I don't get an ear of corn like that!I recently saw how overseas people eat fried spiders like they do french fries here... another yuckie :)Hope you are well.Have a great week!
EEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWW that is nasty!!! Mama some kind of bug has ate my lantanna up in less than a weeks time!
I'm guessing Zimmerman on the food channel would eat it. :)I haven't seen this in many years.It did make for some great macros.
How disgusting! Some people will eat anything! :-)
I'm with you, Dot. No thanks! But I suppose if it's a fungus it's related to mushrooms, which I do eat. ;-)
I have never seen corn like that. I wouldn't know which part is the delicacy.
Well, Mexicans have a rock gut, too - they drink tequila like I drink milk, for GOD sake! YUCK!Had to throw that in! LoL!
I'm stoic on the outside, but on the inside, I screamed like a little girl!
Ew!... but great pictures!
Good post.....Great Blog.....Every one should read this ....thanks for sharin with us......________________DyanaDevisOnline Marketing of your brand
I did a search for corn fungus and this was one on the first page of results. The inspiration came from watching Iron Chefs on the food channel. I'm a culinary graduate and formal chef and never saw or heard of this before. the shows theme ingrediant was corn and included this it was quickly referred to by several names and I remembered Bobby Flay's corn fungus reference so curiosity showed me some interesting stuff. You can sell it for $20 per lb. Most US farmers destroy it but several states are cultivating on purpose. Cuitlacoche word origin is 2 parts from raven and sh*t. It is currently marketed as a truffle because birdsh*t sounds as appetizing as it looks. You pay the $20 I'll eat it.
Great photos... but I couldn't/wouldn't eat it..!
belive it or not it is the most delicius thing you can ever eat,its better than love,there is a reason for its high price
Hi, it looks really awful! I',m losing my appetite... ;)
Ewww, what causes that? I'd starve.
Dot, my reaction would have been the same as yours..eek!I don't know how hungry I would have to be to eat that!
I'd throw up....
What a terrible thing to have on our corn!.Great shot though.B.
Nice new look! It is most soothing.
It looks like something from a science fiction movie! I would have screamed too! Great photo!
Terrific shots! In the spring I was shooting in an abandoned corn field and found some wonderful things sprouting there. I hope to post some of those photos in a week or two, In the meantime, I was delighted to find these. No, I couldn't eat that.

Interesting! May I know at what other plants you will be able to see these fungi? What kind of climate are they more apt to grow? Nice photos, by the way! Thanks for sharing.
