I ordered the seed after the growing season in Missouri, so I would be ready to plant this coming spring. Seed looks fine, but in Missouri I can't plant until May.
I've not harvested any yet, but it grew really well from seed and is already about 3 feet tall and growing ears and silk. It's so pretty. I can't wait to harvest mine!
This is my second season with the painted mountain corn. it fits in the short frost free window of the central Idaho mountains and even tolerates some shade. great production and more palatable than I originally thought. Love it!
