Corn Smut (Ustilago maydis)


Grow your own edible and medicinal Corn Smut mushrooms with liquid culture
syringes!


Ustilago maydis or Corn Smut is a fungus that feeds on corn causing tumor-like
galls. Throughout most of the world, it is considered to be troublesome, however
in Mexico, it is considered to be a delicacy. Native Americans have used Corn
Smut in an attempt to induce labor and it has shown some medicinal potential. It
has been shown to help with the following symptoms:


1. Impaired cerebral circulation*
2. Dizziness*
3. Unsteadiness of motion*
4. Dull headache in top of head*
5. Disordered vision*
6. Alopecia*
7. Scalp diseases*
8. Dryness*
9. Early dental decay*


Corn Smut is characterized by tumor-like galls that form on the growing tissues of
corn forming dark masses. When young, it can be harvested to be eaten and is
described as having a mushroom-like, sweet, savory, woody taste. The ideal time
to gather it is two to three weeks after the ear of corn has been infected.
