What are the pros? easy to grind for flour
What are the cons? none
As being friends with both Ed Shultz and Dave Christensen (painted mountain), I want the world to know one thing....corn was, in many cultures across the Americas, ground or pounded. Both Painted Mountain and Cudu corn is EASY to grind by hand with a nice mill. These are flour corns which make amazing grits, cornbread, soup, and a pemmican additive. Another survival food corn.
I feel the "old energy" with this Cudu corn, similar to what Dave speaks about in the above review. I have a few of these Cudu cobs in my seed collection. When viewed one way the cob holds a white overtone and the eagles are not noticeable. Reverse cob in your hand, the magic of the corn is now looking at you. It magically turns blue from the magic eagle pigment.
There is much joy to be found imagining how a corn can bring life to the Eagle.

What are the pros? Purity of a beautiful trait.
What are the cons? None
There are people who are very excited about the eagle markings on this sacred or ceremonial corn. I was friends with Carl Barnes, the late Indian corn grower of Cherokee decent from Oklahoma. When Carl handled eagle marked seed, tears would come to his eyes as he told of their sacred significance to him.
What people do not understand is that there is no gene that will give you an ear with uniformly eagle-marked kernels from top to bottom such as in these photos. The gene only effects one kernel at a time. The color marking is usually hidden on multi-colored Indian corns. Ed Schultz "Papa" has recreated a pure line of white kernels with blue eagle markings on them, worthy for ceremonial purposes. I am unaware that anyone else can offer such beautiful, fairly dependably uniformly marked ears.
Furthermore, Ed has moved the gene onto a stress-hardy, very fast-maturing gene pool that almost anyone can grow successfully.
If you plant it among other corns, it will cross with them.
