(Zea mays) From the Mandan Indians of Minnesota and North
Dakota. Extensive color range includes some
attractive striped kernels. Use as a flour corn or
for fall displays. Ears are 6-8" long on 6' plants.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost
has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant
in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin
seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and
does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of
water. ± 2,100 seeds/lb
