Painted Mountain Dry Field Corn Seed Organic
Painted Mountain Dry Field Corn seed is certified organic and open pollinated. (85 days) It grows short 5' plants with long thin 6–7" cobs. Painted Mountain is the hardiest, fastest-maturing grain corn in the world! Dave Christensen has spent 40 years developing it in the mountains of Montana from a diverse gene pool of about 80 strains of native corns. It is beautiful with vivid golds, oranges, reds and purples, just about every shade of color known to corn. It's high in anthocyanins. Its bred to withstand high winds, cold temperatures, intense heat and drought, and to survive climate changes. Painted Mountain corn grows where no other corn can grow. In the cool climate of her Tustin, MI, farm, most of Betsy Erickson’s plants survived and recovered from a horrible hail and high wind storm on July 27, 2014. But her real thrill was in grinding and using the cornmeal, which is delicious in pizza dough and in her Swedish Knäckebröd. Not to mention makes the most delicious cornbread I've ever eaten! 1 oz packet sows 25 ft, 4 oz. pack sows 100 ft.
