Montana Cudu Corn

A beautiful spotted variety that is descended from a historic Native American variety. Ed Shultz, renowned corn breeder from Montana, has worked to adapt a blended corn as a tribute to a sacred Native American variety. Cudu corn is said to be an ancient native American variety used for sacred ritual. A sample of seeds was donated to the USDA seed bank by Oscar Will in 1958. This original donated seed may have been accidentally inbred or crossed, as the cobs were stunted and short, and kernels had begun to lose their signature blue eagle marking. Ed is a far northern grower who has worked to create beautiful and early maturing corns like Atomic Orange and the Papa’s corn. He received a sample of seeds from the USDA and has worked for over 5 years to adapt it to his northern region and to create longer cobs. He reports that this variety has long, slender ears and beautiful blue spotted kernels. To achieve this variety, he bred true Cudu corn with a small percentage of Papa's White corn.

Review:

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.

Review:

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.
