Your first thought may be “Indian Corn”. This is not ornamental corn, this is real food corn! Makes great, nutritious flour for corn bread, etc.
Beautiful, multicolored, huge ears (up to 12-14 in. long) on towering, sturdy 12-18 ft. stalks, 1-2 ears per stalk, 10-14 rows per ear. Some all-red and all-blue ears along with an array of purple, white, and striped orange kernels. This variety’s ancestors include many heirloom corns, crossed over the decades to create an immensely productive, drought tolerant, hardy dent corn, good for sweet roasting ears and gorgeous, delicious cornmeal. Dent corn. Selected and bred since 2001 by Susana Lein of Salamander Springs Farm in Berea, KY. Its progenitor, Daymon Morgan’s Kentucky Butcher, was grown by generations of Daymon Morgan’s family in Leslie Co., eastern KY. We’ve been very impressed with this corn variety.
