Wonderful sort

Hi, writing from Sweden, Westmanland province. This corn variety looks exactly as our Painted Mountains. If zo: it has all the qualities we ask for in this cool climate of ours, with a relatively short growing season. We grow it in a Three Sisters system. Stunning colors. Especially we go for the red and deep purple cobs, because of their big antioxident value. Cobs eaten fresh. Fully ripened we keep them for the winter. Excellent for bread and all different dishes. Don't miss.
