Atomic Orange Corn
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0

What are the pros? Easy to grow, productive

What are the cons? Plants only make one ear.


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.
