Translucent kernels in a rainbow of colors. A distinctive presentation in fall displays, the glassy-looking kernels are unique to this variety. Kernels can be popped, but results may vary.

Requires a fairly long growing season for favorable yields. Bred by the late Carl Barnes, an Oklahoma Cherokee who dedicated his life to reclaiming and preserving seed of traditional Native American corns. Harvest in about 120 days. Germination rate about 80% or better.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
