Product Details
UPC: 1061BY

(110-120 days) Developed by the Abenaki, this heritage corn was salvaged by Will Bonsall from an old 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 (bending or breaking of the stalk). 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 2oz. per 50 feet of row, 1# per 400 feet of row, or 10-15# per acre.
