60 to 80 days. Amazingly orange ears are produced super early! We are thrilled to offer this stunning, open-pollinated variety from the gifted corn breeder Ed Schultz of Bozeman, Montana. Although newly released, the variety is nothing new; Ed spent 30 years developing this fantastic soft flint corn. This lovely variety sports a range of orange color from brilliant sunburst orange to pumpkin orange to russett orange; even the cobs are orange! For an added surprise, it will throw an occasional all-white ear. Three to five foot-tall stalks produce 1 to 2 ten-inch ears with 8 rows of kernels in about 60 days.

What are the pros? Grew with minimal care

What are the cons? Short cobs on my plants

Review:

I planted this corn for the 2018 season and it did very well. 2018 was one of the hottest and driest seasons on record for the state of Utah. This little corn jumped up and grew so fast! I had a hard time keeping the garden watered during the dry summer, but even with minimal watering this corn quickly reached maturity and produced beautiful cobs of red-orange ears. The corn was beautiful and made for great fall and harvest decorations. The corn makes a fine cornmeal when ground. Corn bread and corn muffins take on a very pretty color with this variety. I was highly impressed with how well this Atomic Orange corn variety did in our dry desert climate. I saved many of the seeds from my harvest and have planted them again for this 2019 season. I am looking forward to another great harvest. Thank you Baker Creek for bringing this beautiful variety to market.

Review:

I've grown this corn now for two seasons in my greenhouse here in Alaska. I saved the seed from 2017 for last year (2018) and I feel the plants did even better for me. Each one producing at least one full ear about 9 inches long and some producing a second smaller ear loaded with kernels. I've used the dried seed to make hominy and then grind into masa, it's wonderful! The short growing season I have here fits well with this variety of corn, which each year has been starting to harden up by the time fall rains hit and I need to harvest for drying. The plants are robust and fast growing. They love fish compost (Salmon) that I produce here from a local stream.

Review:

Mine were nearly 6 feet tall with peach colored pollen. I got every color from blazing russet to peach and yellow with russet tinge, white with a few yellow kernels, white with russet cob underneath, short cobs, very long cobs. I wish I could post a picture.
