One of the most popular open pollinated yellow varieties grown in the country! Prolific producing field corn. 10-14'H plants produce 9-10"L x 7-8" ears with 16-22 closely spaced rows. Deep yellow kernels on small dark red cobs. Adapted to virtually every state. Good silage producer. Used in making flour, meal and feed.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
