(white) 85/110 days. [Pre- 1875] In the hills and hollows of Virginia this corn is still appreciated as a roasting and hominy corn. Considered the best variety for hominy because the skin of the kernel is easily removed by soaking. Also good for grits, corn meal, and flour. Makes a nice roasting corn. Extremely tall 12 ft. stalks provide good support for pole beans. 2 ears per stalk. Ears have very large flat white kernels. Husks are tighter than most varieties and give excellent protection from beetles and earworm. Has good tolerance to northern leaf blight (H. turicum) and southern leaf blight (H. maydis).
