100 days. Open polinated Heirloom.
Grown by the Hopi Indians for hundreds of years on the mesas of northern Arizona, this corn is very drought tolerant. It also did well for us in a very wet year here in the Ozarks. Stalks are strong and stood up well to many high winds on our farm.
It produces long, beautiful blue ears on a 9' tall plant. It husks easily, and the kernels grind easily into flour and are also excellent parched. Some folks like it roasted at the milk stage- has an old fashioned corny flavor.
Germinated at 86% on 11/26/11.
