85 days. Very early and colorful flour corn for decorating, grinding or making hominy and grits. This corn is a great choice for dry, short season climates and was the first to tassel at Giving Ground Farm. Stalks average 4' and ears measure 8'. More than just a pretty ear, colorful corn=nutritious flour!

How to grow it:  

After all danger of frost has passed, plant 2 seeds 12" apart in rows 18" apart. Thin to one strong plant per row foot. Corn is wind pollinated, so plant in blocks at least 5' x 5' to ensure adequate pollination. Allow cobs to dry on the plant as long as weather remains dry.
