Corn is a consumable item in Fallout 4.


Corn and maize are consumable items, grown across the former United States. The plant grows into a tall, leafy stalk, producing ears of corn that can be harvested and used as food or broken down into components such as vegetable starch.


A common plant in the Commonwealth, corn can be planted in settlements, the produce of which can be harvested for food or as a component for Vim or vegetable starch. Similar to all crops except mutfruit, it provides 0.5 food per plant when assigned to a settler.

Vegetable starch can be broken down into adhesive, a valuable component for crafting. This makes corn one of the most valuable crops to plant, along with mutfruit and tatos.
