Zea mays var. amylacea
Dry Field Corn. It is difficult to find a more beautiful food. The cobs, quite thin, 15-18 cm long, yield glossy seeds of almost all the colours of the rainbow, white, black, blue-black, yellow, orange, red, wine-red and violet. If the cobs are allowed to dry you can easily grind your own corn-flour. Eat them fresh, raw, boiled, roasted, barbecued or boiled as maize porridge. Painted Mountain comes from the mountains of Montana, USA and tolerates cool and windy weather better than most and givesa fully ripe crop very early, in fact among the earliest. The plant grows 150 cm tall. The cobs are used for decorations too. A portion contains about 25 seeds. MOFGA-certified seed. See under Info etc. - Ecologically grown seeds.
