Baby corn 玉米笋 (yù mǐ sǔn)

Small, immature ears of corn are harvested when the ears reach 3 to 4 inches. Their flavor is not as sweet as that of mature corn, and the whole vegetable is eaten, including the cob. Baby corn is often added to Chinese stir-fries to add a crunchy texture. Find it canned in water at the supermarket or Asian grocery stores.
