Pennsylvania Dutch heirloom from 1885.

Thanks to Southern Exposure Seed Exchange for rediscovering this treasure, and Krista Rome for growing GMO-free seed for us. 8' plants selected for 6" conical heads with both rice and pearl type kernels. Can be ground, too.


Prepare soil deeply and work in compost. Sow seed 2 weeks after last frost date. Best planted in succession. Plant directly into garden 15" apart. Corn must be planted in sections of at least 5 feet square to ensure good cross-pollination. Fertilize well. Let ears mature on the stalk until dry, then pick the ears. When they are totally dry, shell the kernels off the ears and store in a dry place. Freeze for a few days if there is evidence of insects eating the dry kernels.
