This variety was developed by corn breeder Ed Schultz over a 30 year period. Ed put in a true labor of love to bring us this beauty as well as the Atomic Orange corn.

Uniformly red 8 to 12 inch ears, with the red in varying shades, including deep oxblood and occasional bright red ears, unique and beautiful! Compact plants about 4 feet tall, taking heat, cool weather and drought in stride. Excellent, very early new flour type.

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? too tall

Review:

This corn is really lovely in color. It did grow taller than I expected, probably closer to six feet. I had problems with it lodging, but my other corn variety did also so I can't say it's this variety in particular that is susceptible. I grew it next to Seneca stalker corn, and they tasseled at different times, so I am not expecting any crossing of genetics. The biggest issue I had is that not all of the kernels filled out. About half of what I planted only had half the kernels, which was disappointing. The Seneca Red did not have this problem. The only thing I can think of is that the pollinators did not find it, maybe because it is early. The Seneca red corn had bees all over it, gathering pollen, but it was a later variety. I'm going to try again this year, though, as it's a very pretty corn- my kids LOVED pulling the stalks open to see what shade of red they'd find.

What are the pros? short season, beautiful

What are the cons? none

Review:

This corn is easy to grow and beautiful! It doesn't take much space. Grew and produced in dry weather. I like the short season. Our garden is surrounded by field corn and it did not cross pollinate, which meant a lot to us. It is both beautiful and delicious! Makes beautiful flour. We are currently soaking some to make corn nuts. Very pleased.

Review:

I have planted a patch of 16 plants of Papa's red. When they were 12 inches tall, my chickens ate most of the plant :(. Still I got some ears and they were stunning red. I have left them for saving seeds, so I can plant more next year.

Review:

I too wish to follow up Dave Christensen's comments about Papa's Red. Baker Creek Seeds is blessed and honored to have both the Painted Mountain and the Papa's trio in our offerings. They rank among the most beautiful corns on the planet and the developers of these have added another beautiful ingredient....They have poured their hearts into them. Thank you to Dave Christensen and Ed Schultz for letting Baker Creek Seeds be a part of distributing these truly amazing varieties.
