1 Oz. "Rotten Clarage" Dent Corn, Silage, Heirloom
Developed in the early 1900s in south central Ohio, called 'Rotten' because the blue kernels looked like bruised corn. Red cobs, 8 ft. stalks, 12 to 18 rows of kernels with a crinkle dent when dried. Mixture of yellow, blue, white kernels. A variety called Ohio Blue Clarage was grown from this corn using just the blue kernels.
Once favored by livestock producers and was still widely grown into the 1980s before corn with numbers for names became common. Farmers reported that feeding this corn to chickens noticeably improved the quality of their eggs.
Now very rare and hard to find. Good producer, easily going over 100 bushels per acre.
