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:

This corn was fun to grow. The color on it was really nice (just make sure to leave it on the stalk until the color develops completely), I hand-pollinated some of the color and the rest I just left it be and it did end up cross-pollinating with some of the neighbors corn and actually produced some interesting metallic sheen gray-green color ears. Some racoons went after it for a night or two but then left the patch alone and never touched it again. I didn't have any problems with it getting moldy or earwigs. I ground some up and made cornbread with it and it tasted amazing! Overall, I definitely plant this again

What are the pros? Beautiful in my fall decor

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was an unexpected surprise, as a first time grower of ornamental corn I wasn't expecting it to be so beautiful. The ears were a very nice size for decorating, smaller than an average ear, which made them a perfect size for decorating. I will grow these again this coming season.

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! ;)

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.
