This beautiful flint corn produces dry ears ranging from yellow to orange to crimson red. It's very flavourful and versatile--we use it for polenta, cornbread and muffins, and tortillas, too. Like other northern flints, it's a scrappy performer in the garden, well-adapted to northern climates. 95 days to maturity.
Also, can we make a quick case for choosing milling corn over sweet corn for your garden (don't grow more than one variety in your garden...corn varieties cross with each other readily, and when that happens, you won't get what you're hoping for)? In late summer and early fall, sweet corn abounds. It's so easy and cheap to procure! So instead, grow your own milling corn. One ear will give you enough flour for a batch of cornbread, and you'll be amazed at the flavour.
