Seed Exchange - Lustrous kernels ranging from dark-red to deep-purple stand out on the plate and in the field. Sweet and flavorful, this variety is delicious eaten fresh from the cob but also works quite well dried and ground into cornmeal. Equally gorgeous dark-red stalks grow 5-7′ tall and produce 1-2 ears per stalk. This versatile variety was bred by Alan Kapuler, Ph.D., Seed Savers Exchange lifetime member and founder of Peace Seeds in Corvallis, Oregon. 85 days.
Instructions - 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.
Direct Seed: 4" Apart
Germination: 4-21 Days
Rows Apart: 36-48"
Light: Full Sun
