New Product!

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!
