Papa's Red Corn

Uniformly red 8 to 12 inch ears, with the red in varying shades, including deep oxblood and occasional bright red ears, unique and beautiful! Compact plants about 4 feet tall, taking heat, cool weather and drought in stride. Excellent, very early new flour type.

ABOUT: PAPA’S RED, WHITE AND BLUE CORNS We’re so excited to introduce this series of short season flour corn for northern climates. Bred by Ed Schultz outside of Bozeman, Montana, The Papa’s Series corns all feature earliness and tolerance to cool conditions. Ed first began breeding his corns about 1985. He started with all the really short-season flour types he could lay his hands on: Mandan Red, Painted Mountain, Fiesta and others. Allowing these types to cross freely, he simply selected the earliest and best each year, for planting the next year. Then came the lengthy process of selecting single-colored ears out of the mix. Some 30 years later, the result: short plants (only to about 4’ tall) that yield very early. Surprisingly long ears—typically 8” long, running occasionally to 12”. These slim, 8-row ears grow from a narrow cob, and are very graceful and beautiful. All the Papa’s Series varieties feature a brilliantly colored exterior, enclosing a white interior comprised of a soft, white flour-type starch—excellent!

Review:

I too wish to follow up Dave Christensen's comments about Papa's Red. Baker Creek Seeds is blessed and honored to have both the Painted Mountain and the Papa's trio in our offerings. They rank among the most beautiful corns on the planet and the developers of these have added another beautiful ingredient....They have poured their hearts into them. Thank you to Dave Christensen and Ed Schultz for letting Baker Creek Seeds be a part of distributing these truly amazing varieties.

Review:

This red corn produces a majority of ears the color of a fire engine, or like maraschino cherries. A few will be darker, a very few lighter. The developer Ed Schultz, is a good friend of mine. I am the developer of Painted Mountain Corn. Ed's corns and my Painted Mtn. corn are "cousins". We have exchanged "champion ears" with each other over the decades. Ed has purified this red line for all the modifier genes that make it dependably the most beautiful red you will ever see. Everyone is attracted to them. They disappear at farmer's markets like snow on hot pavement! Developed in a cool, dry northern climate, Ed's corns are grown dryland without water. Ed's high elevation and short season have created one of the most cold hardy and fastest maturing corns in the world. The short efficient plants produce long beautiful ears. I am happy to see Ed put this on the market, for it's beauty and as the ultimate survival food. The soft flour starch makes great corn bread.
