2 Ounces Organic Indian Corn
Organic Indian Corn - 2 Ounces
Bi-Color, Tri-Color, Quad-Color Corn, Flint Corn, Native American Corn, Mayan Corn, Ancient Corn
When to Plant: Indian corn requires warm soil for germination (above 55F for standard Indian corn varieties). Early plantings of Indian corn should be made at, or just before, the mean frost-free date unless you use special soil-warming protection such as clear polyethylene mulch film.
Germination temperature: 65 F to 85 F - Will not germinate below 45 F
Days to emergence: 7 to 12 to Indian corn require more moisture and often take longer to germinate.
Days to Maturity: 75 Days to full maturity. For smaller cobs, can be harvested at 55 days. For minature heads (Baby Corn) can be harvested at 40-45 days.
Temperature: Corn can survive brief exposures to adverse temperatures-low-end adverse temperatures being around 32 degrees F and high-end ones being around 112 degrees F. Growth decreases once temperatures dip to 41 degrees F or exceed 95 degrees F. Optimal temperatures for growth vary between day and night, as well as over the entire growing season. For example, optimal daytime temperatures range between 77 degrees F and 91 degrees, and optimal nighttime temperatures range between 62 degrees F and 74 degrees F. The optimal average temperatures for the entire crop growing season, however, range between 68 degrees F and 73 degrees F.
Soils: The plant prefers light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils and requires well-drained soil. The plant prefers acid and neutral soils. It cannot grow in the shade. It requires moist soil.
USDA Zones: 3b to 10b
Precipitation: A corn crop in The USA typically uses 20 to 22 inches of water during the growing season. Water requirements of corn vary according to the stage of development. For crop moisture to be adequate, available soil moisture must be more than sufficient to meet the atmospheric evaporative demand. On windy, hot, sunny days with low humidity, evaporation demand on a crop is high and a high amount of available soil moisture must be present if the crop is to avoid stress. Under cloudy skies, high humidity, and cooler temperatures, atmospheric evaporative demand is low and plants can get by with lower amounts of available soil moisture.
Spacing & Depth: Plant the kernels (seeds) 1/2 inch deep in cool, moist soils and 1 to 1 1/2 inches deep in warm, dry soils. Space the kernels 9 to 12 inches apart in the row. Plant two or more rows of each variety side by side to ensure good pollination and ear development. Allow 30 to 36 inches between rows.
Weeding: Corn roots grow very shallow. When weeding areas of planted corn be careful not to damage the roots. Use mulch to keep the roots covered. The Indian method is to plant pumpkins or squash closely to protect the roots, reduce weeds and help retain moisture.
Harvesting: Corn is ready to harvest about 3 weeks after the silk appears at the end of the ear. The silk will dry out and turn brown when at their peak. Pick the ears by breaking the ears from the stalk. The idea is to break of the corn close to the base of each ear without damaging the stalk or the corn.
Uses: This corn can be used for consumption, decoration, feed, just about the perfect all around corn.

I asked a question three times about some seeds I purchased from them. still waiting for answer. Its been over two weeks. I won't buy from them any more.
Purchased monkey puzzle tree seeds. They arrived on time and in acceptable packaging, but the seeds are way too tiny. This type of tree produces large seeds, usually 1.5 to 2 inches in length. The seeds I received where not even 1/16 of an inch.
Emailed seller twice regarding my surprise and concern and have not received a response.
My recommendation: Find another seller.
