Glassy, translucent kernels of unparalleled beauty. Plants are strong, reaching 8-10' tall and high-yielding. Each 5-8" ear displays a gorgeous, unique variation of colors ranging from purples, greens and blues to oranges, yellows, pinks and deep reds. Though ornamental, kernels can be popped, ground or parched. This rare variety is the result of a cross between a Pawnee miniature corn, an Osage red flour corn, and another Osage variety called 'Greyhorse.' It was selected and preserved by the late breeder Carl Barnes, an Oklahoma Cherokee dedicated to preserving traditional Native American corns.
