This is the best Indian flint corn we have found. Huge ears are about 12” long, very thick and heavy! This beauty comes in a whole range of lovely hues from yellow, blue, red, orange, white, purple and more. This one is perfect for stunning autumn displays and for selling at market. Also great for producing lots of corn for meal or feed. We were really excited to find this beautiful corn that was carefully selected for giant size and superior quality by Wade Nursery of Macomb, Michigan.

Review:

I have never had success growing any type of corn. I took a shot (“try, try again, right?) and figured I’d see if maybe I could figure out what makes corn one more time. With little expectation (or knowledge of how to properly plant it) I decided to plant a single row... 12’ long. Knowing corn is wind pollinated I planted it along a southern exposure by my house to hopefully help pollinate the plants. I had at least 95% germination and hand pollinated once just to be sure. Plus I planted the first week of July which apparently not enough time in my area. But, the plants shot up at least 10 - 14’ and all produced at least 1 but usually 2 ears. The first one was a giant, typically 12 - 14” as described. And the 2nd was generally 8 - 10”, but when ai harvested the last week of October it felt like an early Christmas!!! All strikingly beautiful and different colors and they are the “star” of our Thanksgiving centerpiece this year. I am planning on growing again next year!

What are the pros? Great colors, good taste

What are the cons? Poor fill, small ears

Review:

I was expecting much, much more from this field corn. The colors are beautiful and the taste is good but I had major issues in 2018. From a 15' x 10' plot, half of the ears were under 6" and all of them had issues with mold and poor (as in, nonexistent) tip fill. I had to discard most of the tips and about a third of the crop due to mold. The corn grew quickly and robustly - by late July the tallest stalk was well over 12 feet - had me excited but overall just ended in disappointment.

Review:

This is just the best corn. We planted it in a patch 2 years ago and got decent yields of cobs nearly half as long as your average 3 year old is tall. We did have a few cobs with head smut, which is possibly the grossest plant disease I've encountered (think rotting poopy baby diaper). This year with better air flow we haven't seen any sign of smut. The kernels are so beautiful that once shelled you just want to run your hands through them and marvel at all the colors. Dark red, blue, lavender, pearl, yellow, orange with stripes, etc. We saved our seed and planted a "corn fence" around our garden this year, two rows wide. Does will with absolutely no irrigation. Almost perfect germ on 2 year old seed watered only by rain. Our fence is about 12 feet tall and has kept most critters except for a stray deer out of our garden. Next year we will plant it three rows wide with a row of spiny squash outside of that!

Review:

Grew these just to fill empty space in the garden and wanted something different to play around with. I planted 2 seeds in each hole about 11" apart and had 99% germination in 3 rows about 20' long in a full sun area. i believe i watered them twice in the year both times shortly after sprouting which happened quickly in a area never gardened before with mostly clay soil. neighbors were shocked how tall they grew so quickly when comparing to sweet corn. plants all ended up averaging around 12-14' tall and withstood wind excellently for their height. ears on the plant averaged around 4.5" thick and roughly 13-16" long with 2-3 ears per plant all coming out of the stalk around head height while the rest of the plant towered way above. no raccoon damage but corn worms showed up and were gone after treating tassels with Bt and only one plant developed smut. i harvested about 14 random ears for seed and left the rest on the plants which the deer ate in late fall. cant wait to plan again.

What are the pros? Huge ears, beautiful colors

What are the cons? Stalks fell over easily

Review:

I love this corn. My only issue was that my entire garden of it was flattened during a thunderstorm. The stalks are very tall and heavy. It mostly righted itself before getting leveled a second time. Most of it managed to grow upright in the end, coaxed by the sun. A few had to be staked. But the size, weight and colors of the ears made up for all the trouble. They were huge! One ear was 15"! I will definitely grow this again.
