Since the 1800s, this Appalachian heirloom has been one of the best all around corn grown in the USA. It has been said to grow “as high as an elephant's eye” with 10-12 ' heights being commonplace. Each stalk produces 2 ears of large, yellow, “shiny as satin” kernels that are full of that “Down South” rich, traditional flavor. Hominy, cornmeal, grits and roasting ears from this variety are in a class by themselves! It is also somewhat resistant to southern leaf blight and its tightly wrapped husks help deter corn ear worms and beetles!
