85-100 days. The stunningly beautiful ears of corn come in a range of greens, from yellow-green through emerald, with every imaginable shade in between. The deeply dented kernels have been used for centuries by the Zapotec people to make a regional favorite, green-flour tamales. Also makes excellent cornbread! The 6- to 10-inch ears are superb in arrangements and for fall decoration. Plants reach 7 feet, are very drought-tolerant, and perform well even at higher latitudes. Amazing and cool!

Review:

Love this corn! We were looking for a tall annual to fill some space in our front yard and this corn seemed perfect. Its unique colors are beautiful while drying, ours turned quite a deep green blue. the stalks are hefty and stood up well to our howling daily winds. No problems with drought, it was a very dry year but also when we got the usual over abundance of rain these plants still stayed strong. There was even a cold snap that brought frost and we didnt loose a single ear! The best part was that virtually NO earwigs were found nestling in the ears, what a great corn. We dried these on the stalk, braided them and left in hang in our house, they look so beautiful and the bit of flour we ground from the 15 ears was nice.

Review:

I tried this corn for the first time in 2015 and plan to grow it every year now! The color of the corn is unique and attractive. The stalks grew big and healthy with 8-10 inch ears. Each stalk averaged 2 ears per stalk. The stalks themselves were about 10 feet tall which was impressive. I dried the ears and it dried quicker than some other varieties I grew. I made corn bread and cornmeal mush and both were delicious! Can't beat green cornbread! ;)

What are the pros? Colorful

What are the cons? variable ear size

Review:

This was one of three corn varieties in the Three Sisters planting at my university demonstration garden. It hybridized with an Indian flint corn variety and the result was very interesting: the kernels retained their "dent" characteristic but gained a wide range of pastel/metallic hues that subtly altered the normal green coloration. The ears and stalks did vary quite a bit in size, but that might be due to the relatively small number of plants in the plot.

What are the pros? Grew well but late

What are the cons? Turkeys love the stuff

Review:

I read the review about the corn outgrowing the wildlife, and was encouraged. I put an 8 foot deer fence around my patch and planted. It grew and got a couple of ears per stalk, although they were short ears, maybe 6 inches long. We had a wet and cool early summer, then no rain. I sprinkled. The raccoons found the corn. I put netting over the top of the patch, fastening the edges to the deer fence. The turkeys promptly started flying in. They'd just hit that netting repeatedly, flying up and landing on it, until it gave way. They ate pretty much all of it. I have about half a dozen ears that I will grind for cornmeal when it is sufficiently dry. Oddly, none of the wildlife wanted the sweet corn at all, only this stuff. I think I have about enough left to plant next year. (sigh) Try, try again.

What are the pros? Gorgeous

What are the cons? Twisted whorl in a few plants

Review:

This corn is beautiful. While I did experience some twisted whorl the corn grew and it grew fast. My stalks reached around 5-6ft but my neighbors stalks towered at around 7ft we both had a bunch of tillers with this variety. I would definitely grow it again.
