    Great germination!

    I got the seed savers pack and the germination was amazing. Nearly 100%. Growing in straight clay soils and it is doing great.


    This variety really stood out in my nursery. It was clearly tolerant of heat and drought. Good plant health and excellent stay green after maturity. The stalks were strong. The only problem I noticed was that anthesis and silking didn't occur at the same time. I'd imagine you need a large amount of plants to get a good pollination.

    This corn is beautiful and I think just the kind of landrace I was looking for. I got the seed savers pack and planted about 160 kernals and saved the rest. I have terrible predation on seedlings with ants and slugs so I sprout corn first and then cover in cayanne to deter ants from eating the seed. About 150 plants came up and there is wonderful diversity in the plant itself. It has been about 60 days since and theyre all about 4-6 feet tall. Some have dark stalks, some green, some are producing nice arial roots which is a trait i want more of after reading about the nitrogen fixing properties of arial roots. There is an interesting sweet corn aroma that comes off the plants. May is one of our driest months and this june has been unusually dry and these plants are still doing great. They were planted in aged horse manure and mulched heavily, dry farmed, and double planted in each row, three rows and a half to form a block. I will definitely save seed and work with this corn keeping it as a landrace to adapt to our location in North Florida.

    I am waiting for the soil to warm up before planting the seeds. The weather has begun to warm but recently we had frozen soil. Planting soon.
