Grain Corn - Cascade Ruby Gold Flint
85 days. 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. Open-Source-Seed-Initiative-Pledged Variety.
