Osage Brown Corn

(AKA FAIRFAX BROWN) A very unusual and beautiful colored corn. Kernels are a rich chocolaty brown and are a flour type brought to us by Stephen Smith. Perfect for grinding into a colorful corn meal and flour. Plants reach 4 to 6 feet tall and bear 1 or 2 ears in 80 to 100 days. Grown for centuries by the Osage people, who once farmed the river valleys here in the Ozark hills.

Review:

This was my first year trying corn. It was in raised beds with lots of amended soil and some mid-growth natural fertilizing. I didn't fuss much over it. Each was planted as closely as I could get away with and I had great germination from the seeds. Having learned from an attempt last year, we lightly covered the seedlings until they were several inches tall, because two years ago, some critter plucked out 1" tall seedlings, ate the seed, and left the green grassy bits lying on the soil - grr. Being my first real time growing corn, I did not realize that the pollen came out before the silks. So we got anemic ears with relatively few kernels. This is a learning process, so next time I know what to watch for and can save some pollen and distribute artificially if the pollen and silks come out at different times. Saved the dry seed ~2 cups. Will grind for a pan of cornmeal, so I can't speak to flavor yet. But the color for what we did get was truly lovely deep chocolaty brown color.
