From breeder Joseph Lofthouse: "This is a sister line selected from 'Harmony Grain' corn. Large soft kernels that are particularly easy to grind or mill. Very suitable for making hominy and masa harina. More susceptible than harmony to predation by birds, small mammals, and insects. About 85 to 115 days to maturity as dried grain."

GROWING TIPS: Direct seed after danger of last frost in rows about 3 feet apart, plants could end up 10-15 inches apart.
