(88 days) Organic blue Flint Corn. Open-pollinated.
A blue flint corn with the benefits of anthocyanins (antioxidants). Flint corn has a layer of hard starch on the outside which grinds up coarser and makes a somewhat grainer flour than the softer flour corn does. This grainier texture makes it better for grits, polenta, hominy and, arguably, for cornbread. When grown in wet climates, flint corn’s hard outer layer of starch can resist mold better than softer flour corn.
This predominately dark blue, 8-rowed flint corn grows very much like Painted Mountain, which is 50% of its ancestry. The other half of its ancestry comes from a composite of 20 of the fastest maturing New England flint corns.
About a half ounce.
