50 "Silvermine" Heirloom White Dent Corn, USA
Zea mays. 112 Days. Silvermine white dent corn was developed by J.A. Beagley of Sibly, ILL in 1890.
This corn produces extremely high yields, up to 73 bushels per acre.
Very large, heavy ears at 11-12" with creamy white kernels. Tight husks help resist corn ear worms. Even does well in poor soils and drought.
Use as roasting ears on the grill or over the campfire—or let the kernels dry and make white cornmeal or flour for tortillas, chips, hominy, masa harina, Posole, Corn Bread, Corn Muffins, Hush Puppies, Corn Fritters, Grits, or Corn Soup, to name more than a few.
Open pollinated. For the best pollination, plant in blocks rather than a single long row. Plants should be spaced about 10 in. apart. Full sun.
