This is an open pollinated population corn selected for orange color and high carotenoid content adapted to our northern climate. Plant breeder, Zachary Paige has blended a few orange colored varieties together to create this population. Varieties include Dziekuje; a dark orange corn gifted from plant breeder Frank Kutka which originally came from Argentina, Otto File; a prized polenta corn grown in Italy, and various orange colored landraces from USDA GRIN and Mexico. Great for corn bread and grits. Sweet, rich flavor.

Growing tips

Sow in tilled soil 8 inches apart in 24-30 inch rows. Plant after danger of frost in spring. Harvest after husks have dried down or in the milk stage (sweet corn stage) for boiling and enjoying Mexican-Style street corn on a stick! Find recipes on our website.
