Grain Corn - Cascade Ruby Gold Flint (Certified Organic)
3.25 12 $3.25 - $12.00
Bred by Carol Deppe of Fertile Valley Seeds to be the ultimate survival crop, the variety and crop you would choose if you could have only one variety to get you through good times and bad. A very early and productive corn, reliable even during our coolest summers. Has long ears on narrow cobs with husks that peel back easily when dry. Produces solid-colored ears of several colors—red, red-brown, dark red, orange-gold, maple-gold, gold, and yellow. The red shades make a rich-flavored cornbread; the yellow shades make a mild-flavored cornbread. Both make great polenta and johnny cakes. Also a great ornamental corn. (Note: if you want to plant sweet corn too, plant a late sweet corn variety so as to avoid pollination conflicts.) Please consider ordering directly from Fertile Valley Seeds if convenient. We want to support Deppe’s breeding efforts and thus not take potential sales away from her, but also wish to make this corn variety more widely available because it is a gem! Approx. 85 seeds per ounce. OSSI-pledged variety.
