Roy's Calais flint corn is an open-pollinated flint corn originally cultivated by the western Abenaki (Sokoki) people in Vermont, and subsequently grown and maintained by pioneer farmers, including Roy and Ruth Fair of North Calais, Vermont. Roy's Calais is slightly sticky and can be eaten as a sweet corn, but is mostly used for posole or hominy. It has a buttery aroma and a rich, creamy flavor, and a protein content significantly higher than most flint corns. Its brief time to harvest (90-95 days to dry field corn) makes Roy's Calais a reliable cultivar for short-season growing areas.
