(Zea mays) Originated with the Seneca Nation of Indians. One
of the most distinctive varieties of corn cultivated
today. Highly ornamental purple-red stalks and
husks. Large 8-9" ears of multicolor kernels 100 days.
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.
