Heirloom Organic Boone County White Corn Seeds (10)
(Zea mays) 110-120 days. Non-GMO Boone County White Corn is one of the oldest of the heirloom white varieties, believed to have originated in Indiana and descended from ‘White Mastadon’, with its history dating back to at least the Civil War. Considered to be one of the finest of corn varieties specifically bred for roasting, it is known to be a favorite at festivals and fairs. 10-12′ leafy stalks bear large 10-12″ ears with 18-24 rows of pure white, delicious kernels. In its early use, it was grown extensively in the south for grinding and making corn bread, but is now often picked young for roasting. Also makes a good fodder crop.
