Maize (or corn) is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas. It can be obtained by harvesting a maize plant, buying it from merchants, or finding it in certain locations.

CharacteristicsEdit

Maize can restore Hit Points with no radiation damage. It is one of the few edible food items that does not give any radiation, besides other fresh fruits or vegetables and food found in the non-compromised vaults. Additionally, in hardcore mode, it can reduce Starvation and Dehydration.

Maize is one of the most efficient (in terms of Starvation to weight ratio) hardcore mode food items in the game, should the Courier have low Survival skill, as it often removes more Starvation/Dehydration than most food items, contains zero radiation, is extremely common, and only weighs a quarter of a pound.

Maize can be used to craft homemade flamer fuel, Cass' moonshine and mole rat stew.
