This lovely field corn performs remarkably well in our Maritime climate – calling into question its reputed Mexican origins. Some sources say this variety actually originates in the midwest US, with the variety name purely a marketing strategy. Either way, an excellent and gorgeous corn for northern growers. Our late-May planting is ready to harvest and dry down indoors in October! Tall and robust plants – our 2019 stand of corn survived the ravages of Hurricane Dorian, while the 2022 growout withstood Hurricane Fiona. 2 ears per plant. Dent corn is traditionally used for making tortillas and cornmeal, but could also be used for homestead animal feed.
