'Piper's' High Protein Dent Corn, gold and blue
A superior variety of corn for animal feed or corn flour. Tests show this is very high in usable protein. Developed by Sam Piper to form Piper’s High Protein corn, a high quality protein-based maize originating from Native American seed stock.
Grown and developed in North Carolina specifically for its high levels of amino acids and digestibility. University of Missouri lab tests show Pipers is one of the highest protein corn varieties currently available in America at about 12% protein.
The 8-foot tall plants produce 8 to 9 inch ears which average 14 rows of 60 kernels in a row. Most have red cobs. Good keeper.

Protein Notes: My Hopi Blue corn has just as much protein content (above 10%), as does my Wapsie Valley dent corn. Both are Native American heirloom varieties sold here. Also, Reid's Heirloom Dent is high in protein.
