Heirloom flint corn originally from the western Abenaki (Sokoki) people of Vermont. Subsequently grown by local farmers Roy and Ruth Fair of North Calais, VT. Plants grow 7' tall and bear 8-12" long ears that are golden-yellow or maroon-red. The only type of corn to survive during the infamous Year Without a Summer (1816). Primarily used for cornmeal, posole, or hominy. 90-95 days.   Sow seeds outdoors 1” deep after danger of frost has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin seedlings to 8” apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.100

    • The short answer is YES. It is an early variety that copes with adverse weather. Does well in most soils. Good drainage and full sun are important. Must be planted in sections of at least 5 sq ft for good pollination. Sow seeds 2 weeks after average date of spring frost. One of the most important rediscovered heirlooms of recent years, this New England corn is so cold-hardy that it survived the "year without a summer" in 1816. Developed and preserved by the Abenaki Tribe of Northern Vermont. It is not only "incredibly early and able to grow well under cold conditions" Most of the 7"-9" ears are golden yellow but a few are deep red, making some of the prettiest polenta and cornbread. DAYS TO MAT: 75-100 days
