90-110 days.  Originated from Robert Reid of Illinois in 1847

In 1877 James Reid produced a yield of 120 bushels an acre!  The average yield at the time was 27 bushels of corn per acre.  This became the world famous Reid's yellow dent.

Color is deep yellow, with a lighter cap, but a reddish tinge often appears.

The cobs tend to be small and dark red. Ears are 9 to 10 in. long and 7 to 8 in. around with plants growing to 10-14 feet tall.

Larger ears on the stalk can weight 1.8#s!

Ear tapers slightly, with 16 to 22 closely spaced rows. Kernels are very deep and narrow to medium in width, slightly keystone in shape, with a square crown.

Slightly rough, with kernels dented on top. Stalks are tall and leafy and make very good silage.

Adapted to virtually every state.

Contains 50 heirloom seeds
