This is the best Indian flint corn we have found; huge ears are about 12” long, very thick and heavy! This beauty comes in a whole range of lovely hues from yellow, blue, red, orange, white, purple and more. This one is perfect for stunning autumn displays and for selling at market. Also great for producing lots of corn for meal or feed. We were really excited to find this beautiful corn that was carefully selected for giant size and superior quality by Wade Nursery of Macomb, Michigan.

What are the pros? Good yields, multi-use.

What are the cons? Some ears didn't fill out.

Review:

Grew very well here in central Michigan despite an extremely wet start and a cool summer. Vigorous HUGE stalks with 1-2 large ears of the prettiest kernels I've grown. Very large variance of colors and patterns of kernels. Some came out so dark red they looked black, some were mixes of green, yellow-orange striped, lavender, and blue. Nearly as much color variance as "Glass bead" corn.

What are the pros? Produced way more than expect

What are the cons? Heavy stalks

Review:

We grew this for ornamental purposes and we'll because I had empty space in the garden and Heaven forbid I let a space go unfilled! Every stalk had two to three ears of corn and they were all quite large! I had enough to give lots away as gifts and gave plenty left for us. My only complaint was that I had a fungus problem. But that was garden wide this year for me. I will grow these again next year and plant many many more!

What are the cons? taste

Review:

Texas Panhandle, zone 6b/7a. Unseasonably wet season, avg temp 90s, highs around 100. Wind speeds up to 40 mph. Corn planted against 6 ft tall privacy fence so had protection from the worst of the wind. Planted with pumpkins. Germination near 100%. Ground was poor clay with about 6" of rabbit poo on top. Planted 3 rows deep in a U shape with 4 Howden pumpkins in the center of the U. Corn easily went 10 ft tall. Pumpkins pulled some stalks over, others got knocked down by winds. Around 80% stayed upright. Two ears per stalk on every one of them, even downed ones. Some ears were not fully pollinated due to overcrowding so watch your spacing because these are BIG plants. Tried some on the grill and they were pretty tough but I didn't buy it as an eating corn so that's ok. The dried ears are GORGEOUS! The colors are all over the chart, and some of them look like beautiful blown glass. Ears drying now for decoration. We popped a few, tasty but a bit tough. Will grow again.

What are the pros? Grew fast,likes manure,tough

What are the cons? Slow drying down

Review:

Wades Giant was a little slow to emerge,but moisture conditions were tough right after planting,so I irrigated,and it came up.It grew fast and liked the manure I worked in and used it well,had great color,pollinated very well.It cross bred with some regular Indian corn I had from the farm store and made some real funky lookin corn on a few stalks.I had a lot of 12-14 inch ears.I ordered 2 packets and didnt get enough for 2 full rows in my garden,so order plenty.Livestock loves the ears.Im saving seed,and want to raise this corn to pick in the ear and feed livestock.It pollinated well,but we had unseasonably cool and moist weather at the time.I am curious how well it does at 100 degrees and a 20 mph wind during pollinating time.If it'll yield anything like what it did this time,Im hooked for life.I loved raising this corn.P.S. Heres a bonus...Ive had coons ruin corn for years,and even though they broke over a few stalks,they left the ears alone.So cows love it and coons dont!

What are the pros? Huge gorgeous ears!

What are the cons? None

Review:

Wow, this corn delivers on its promise. 12-14" ears in stunning colors. I was worried that the wind in my area would be a problem for the size of this corn, it was not. Hands down winner for size and beauty.
