Multicolored sweet corn developed by Dr. Alan "Mushroom" Kapuler from a cross between 'Painted Mountain' flour corn and 'Luther Hill' sweet corn. Good for short seasons. Tasty, hearty, sweet, but not too sweet, classic corn flavor!
Our seed comes from our great friends and super talented farmers and seed savers, Clint Freund and Kass McKinnon, of Cultivating the Commons. Grown very well by them in Milaca, MN, which is pretty far north and has a short season.
