Best short season corn we have tried so far. It even made a crop in 2012. The variety was bred by Carol Deppe, in Oregon. She describes it as THE ULTIMATE SURVIVAL CROP. It can be used for cornbread, johnny cakes, and polenta. It produces solid-colored ears of several colors—red, red-brown, dark red, orange-gold, maple-gold, gold, and yellow. Interior kernel color is always yellow or gold. Each color of ear produces a different flavor of cornbread. The red shades make a rich-flavored cornbread; the yellow shades make a mild-flavored cornbread. Both make great polenta and johnny cakes. Recipes for cornbread, johnny cakes, and polenta made with this corn can be found in The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-reliance in Uncertain Times.
