50 "Kentucky Moonshine" Heirloom White Dent Corn
Rare old Southern white dent corn famous for its great flavor, and a favorite of moonshiners in Kentucky and Tennessee for generations.
Sturdy, medium-tall stalks, does well even in poor soil. Big 9-12 in. ears are densely packed with good-sized seeds, 16-18 rows, good husk coverage, 1-2 ears/stalk. Some seeds resemble gourd-seed corn, and others do not.
Open pollinated. For the best pollination, plant in blocks rather than a single long row. Plants should be spaced about 12 in. apart. Full sun.
An early 1900s SE Tenn. variety, preserved by the late Mr. Looney of Winchester, TN.
