(Zea Mays)

90-100 days. Our main crop field corn that we grow for cornmeal, flour and for making masa. After grinding, we sometimes sift out the coarse polenta from the flour and we have two different staple foods from a single crop. A flinty dent type selected from a freely crossed population of Wapsie Valley Dent, Vermont Flint, Garland Flint, Italian Polenta and several unnamed varieties from a University of Wisconsin breeding project for nutrition. This is an early selection and is still purposefully variable. We hope to improve it constantly through selection each year and we offer 2011 selected seed. Selected for medium-sized, early ears that range in color from yellow to orange to red. All single color ears, which is useful for zeroing in on the particular flavor of each color. High yielding with good fertility.
