Very hearty flavor missing in most corns today! Sturdy 5-6'H plants produce 2-3 ears per stalk with long deep yellow shoepeg dent kernels on "pencil sized" red cobs. Germinates in cooler soils. Reliable producer under many conditions. Unequaled in roasting ears! Very flavorful in milk stage for frying or creaming. Incredibly popular for southern style grits!
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
