85Â–90 days. [Dave Christensen has been breeding this variety in Montana for 30+ years, working with 70+ early, cold hardy Native American varieties. Our strain is grown by the Moyer family in SW Virginia.] Widely adapted, this amazingly super hardy corn is early maturing with great cold soil tolerance. Slim, 6Â–8 in. ears, 1Â–2 ears per 4Â–5 ft. stalk. Beautiful multicolor ears, Â“Husking each ear is like opening presents,Â” says grower Richard Moyer. Fresh ears can be roasted; dried, the corn works great for flour or parching. Critters share our love for this corn, so be vigilant, or plan to harvest early for fresh eating if you want to get any!
