Byron Flint Corn
(110-120 days) Developed by the Abenakis, this heritage corn was salvaged by Will Bonsall out of a shoebox in the little western Maine town of Byron. Expect a single stalk with 2-3 long ears with cobs like knitting needles. Yellow-orange kernels, eight rows to twelve at top. Good husk coverage, resistant to lodging. Organic.
Flint corn has colorful kernels with hard outer shells; it is used primarily to make cornmeal, which was a staple of all farm diets in the 1800s. Approximately 100 seeds per oz. Sow at 2 oz. per 50 feet of row, 1# per 400 feet of row, or 10-15#/acre.
Available for 2021 shipment.
