This corn is the very definition of rugged beauty! These incredibly tough plants were bred in the bitter cold Mountains of Montana, they boast impressive cold hardiness, earliness, drought tolerance and they thrive at high altitudes. Montana farmer, Dave Christensen has dedicated his life's work to naturally breeding a corn that will thrive in harsh conditions, and since the 1970s has sampled from over 70 open pollinated varieties of corn to create painted mountain corn. These are old heirlooms grown by Northern Native American tribes over thousands of years as well as homesteaders from harsh northern climates. The bright color of the kernels indicate a high nutrient content, making it an excellent corn for decoration or for eating! Painted Mountain Corn can be eaten fresh, ground, roasted and make a highly nutritious flour for muffins, johnny cakes, tortillas and chips!

Review:

I love this corn. I grew enough in my first year to collect almost an ice cream bucket full of seed. Last year I sprent $50 of my own money to send seed to other people. Strangers/friends. Because I love this corn so much. This year I plan to plant more, and continue to share. There is something magical in seeds and we must protect them from companies that will destroy the diversity and beauty in heirloom/open pollinated species.

Review:

Great for southern Germany, even in a rainy year. I sow in KW 16 in Pots and planted them in the third week of May. In the end of September I got really ripe corn cobs with fertile seeds. Also the colour was great. Till now the best in my place.

Review:

My erratic growing season rarely gives over 100 frost-free days. Most Indian corns take 120! I heard this was 70 days and gave it a shot. Every moment is stunning, sowing to harvest. Open the pack and pour glistening gemstones into your hands. Watch seedlings emerge, streaked with red, purple, or yellow. A deep purple cornstalk will have brilliant red silks and delicate yellow tassels. To one side, a yellow stalk with purple ears and red pollen; on the other red stalks with yellow silk and purple tassels. Even husks can be deep burgundy. Just let ears dry on the stalks. No big problem in Reno, where we get fewer than five rainstorms each summer. Pull ears off, peel back husks, and see even more magic. My favorite was "blue denim:" kernels of white, cream, powder blue, indigo, and a spotted country wallpaper-type seed pattern. I decobbed by hand and crushed in a 100-year-old grinder. Very nutty flavor in cornbread. Store in the freezer to retain quality. So easy and successful!

Review:

Super easy to grow and very easy to harvest. Opening each ear of corn was an entire color palette. I got enough kernels this year for myself and all of my friends. I definitely recommend this to everyone.

Review:

I planted this corn in a 5X7 foot planting box in April on our property not far from Mt.Rainier. It is in the foothills and there are often late frosts, summers with no rain and so on. I had a bad accident and was not able to do anything all summer to tend to the corn since I live a far piece away. I figured if I got anything at all, it would be a real surprise. Well, indeed I DID GET SOME--it wasn't much but there are a number of beautiful viable ears. This variety is tough. I planted two packets and despite it all--no watering from me during our summer PNW drought, it survived and did produce some anyway. Call me a fan.
