(blue) 100 days. [Developed west of the Appalachians in the Ohio and W. Virginia area ~1830- ’50.] A highly uniform, semi-dent corn. Solid blue, 8-10. ears on 10 ft. stalks, 2 ears/stalk. Originally developed as a meal and feed corn, it has a higher sugar content than most dent corns, and may be used fresh in the milk stage. As cornmeal it has a sweet flavor. It mills easily and makes speckled blue and white flour, but if the bran is sifted out, a white flour is obtained. Older farmers who use this corn to feed chickens claim that the chickens will eat more, lay more eggs, and put on more meat. Sturdy stalks, excellent Corn Rootworm resistance, and tolerates crowding and smut better than many other open pollinated corns. Pkt (42 g = 1.5 oz, 136 seeds)
