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.

Perfect

by

Excellent maize variety to use in a 3 sisters garden to support pole beans. Did great in the worst weather summer in my life here in central Massachusetts. Grew to 8 or 9 feet , multiple ears per stalk. Braided and drying . Can't wait to use this winter.

A dream

by

Great production , had a few grow 12 ft , most 9 to 10 ft. 2 and 3 ears on every stalk. We grow in a traditional 3 sisters garden. Plan to use in traditional dishes of my Wendat ancestors over the winter. Will grow again here in central Massachusetts.

Good Grits

by

Very hardy and prolific corn, and each colorful ear was unique. I hand-ground some of the corn into cornmeal and grits. It made pink cornbread and pink grits, and they were delicious. The cracked corn was preferred by my chickens over the co-op chicken scratch. Saved some seed and planted the next year, and it all came up, too.
