Supremely decorative and highly edible. Bred by Carl “White Eagle” Barnes, the famous Cherokee corn collector. A photo of this flint variety was a Facebook sensation in 2012. Colorful, translucent “stained glass” kernels are great for popping; they can also be parched, or made into cornmeal. Sturdy stalks can reach a height of 9’, and if the season is long enough, will develop side-shoots with additional ears. So beautiful you won’t want to eat it!

Is this a edible corn? Tastey? Chewy?
Linda on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is VERY chewy, too much so for me. All we could do was make colorful
hanging arrangements. I did not consider it edible. Impressive plants of
10 to 12 feet high.
is this popping corn? Does it make good popcorn??
Francesca K on Feb 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is popping corn. I did pop some and I didn???t particularly care for it. I do believe it???s much better for corn meal or decorative purposes
