This variety gets its name from Wade Hopkins (Hop) McConnell, who operated a general store in Scott County, Virginia and introduced this unique corn to local farmers. Ears average 6-8" long on 12' stalks and produce a single kernel color—red, white, or striped. The all-white kernels are traditionally used for cornmeal and hominy. Dent corn. 100 days. ±1,300 seeds/lb.

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.
