Indian Corn Seed - Certified NON-GMO
Indian Corn, or Flint Corn, is one of the oldest varieties of corn. It is widely known as a symbol of Fall and the American harvest season. Its kernels come in a wide range of colors including white, red, yellow, brown and blue. The common nickname of "flint" corn is due to the kernels being known as "hard as flint" by the Native Americans. This variety is often dried and used for decoration because the soft and hard starches in the kernels helps them to shrink uniformly, retain their color and make them extremely less prone to spoiling during drying.
Indian corn is well adapted to the growing conditions of most of the United States. This variety is considered a Heirloom and despite its tough exterior, can be eaten fresh by humans or consumed by livestock. Indian corn once mature can be ground for hominy and polenta.
