What are the pros? Matured early
What are the cons? Falls over in wind and rain
We've been growing Mandan Red corn and were excited that Papa's Red was a selection from that plus other early maturing Indian corns. We've been disappointed that it still tends to blow over in windy, rainy weather. Also, Mandan Red bakes into a gorgeous blue cornbread whereas Papa's Red only leaves dark red flecks in the bread. It's not as flavorful as Mandan Red either. On the plus side, it produces more red cobs than Mandan Red which has lots of red, as well as every other color it seems! Probably won't try Papa's red, white, and blue as we still have Mandan Red and will continue growing that.
