Item Details

Lustrous kernels ranging from dark-red to deep-purple stand out on the plate and in the field. Sweet and flavorful, this variety is delicious eaten fresh from the cob but also works quite well dried and ground into cornmeal. Equally gorgeous dark-red stalks grow 5-7′ tall and produce 1-2 ears per stalk. This versatile variety was bred by Alan Kapuler, Ph.D., Seed Savers Exchange lifetime member and founder of Peace Seeds in Corvallis, Oregon. 85 days.

Instructions - 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.

Not Sweet, Won't Grow Again

by

Beautiful corn, grew well, but bland, not sweet, and half the ears have very tough kernels. I'll try to leave the rest for corn meal and will try another variety next year.

Fun!

This corn is sweet and beautiful, good for fresh eating, but not sugar sweet like some other varieties. I found it easy to grow in zone 6 and quick to mature in a small garden.
