Bronze Orange Corn

Dwarf stalks are only 3 ½ feet high. Despite its small stature, it produces up to 5 ears per stalk! Makes choice roasting ears at the milk stage (although not exactly a sweet corn), or allow the burnt-orange kernels to develop completely for a superior flour type. Originally introduced by Dr. Alan Kapuler in the 1980s. Limited quantities available this season.

What are the pros? Gorgeous ears

What are the cons? Poor yield, very late

Review:

Tried this for the first time in a new bed, clay loam, that we amended with compost and organic fertilizer. From descriptions elsewhere, I expected a short-season corn. Well...first, most of the plants grew taller than described. They looked basically healthy, but didn't produce a lot of ears. The ears that we have are gorgeous: plump and well-filled. However, I harvested them today, October 2nd, because a light frost is predicted, and at least half are still light yellow and most of them, even the bronze ones, still had fresh silk - ! Most of the wrappers had started to dry, but - fresh silk on October 2nd?!! Earlier in the summer, we had many weeks of weather in the 80s. It was dry, so we watered moderately. I don't know what this corn wanted, but if it had matured I wouldn't have minded the small yield - we're not trying to grow all of our food. Anyway, it's shucked and hanging, but next year, it'll be back to the beautiful, bionic Painted Mountain corn for us.

Review:

Picked this variety for my small allotment-style garden and windy location. Grown for flour and masa and great for both.

What are the pros? drought tolerant,

What are the cons? nothing to not like really

Review:

The Alberta summers are usually too short to get a good crop of corn. I tried this variety out as the description gives the shortest growing time of all the varieties I have seen thus far. I certainly was not disappointed. I got a large crop of ears that I processed and froze. I ate some earlier in the season that were tender and semi-sweet almost like sweet corn. The plants were drought resistant too. This is a great variety and I will certainly be growing it again. I recommend it for areas with shorter summers.

What are the pros? Matures early...beautiful!

Review:

I just finished shelling this corn after growing it this past year. You have to see it to believe the bronze color of the kernels. They really do look rather metallic....stunning! The corn grew well, but did not get the 5 ears per stalk that was claimed, however I did plant them rather close. Despite that the corn produced very well, and I can't wait to start cooking and baking with it!
