Quite an amazing work of natural art! Exceptionally high genetic variability (a trait sought after by generations of indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere), ranging from a dark purple that is nearly black, through many shades of red, yellow, orange, blue, to multi-colored, striped kernels. But selecting and growing out kernels of similar colors still produces the gamut of beauty in offspring. Some stalks have deep reddish-purple leaves and tassels; these generally produce the darker kernels.
Exceptionally early corn, especially when grown during the heat of summer - 62 days from seed documented to the milk stage; and this corn is very tasty at that stage, if you can get past your belief that sweet corn must be very sweet. Also very productive, this is an excellent variety for areas with a short growing season.
Note - it's difficult to categorize "strains" based on kernel color, so by default I will send a blend of colors. If you would like a selection, let me know by email when you place your order. Indicate: "Painted Mountain Purple" (predominately dark reddish-purple kernels); "Candy Striped" (bi-colored kernels) or similar description.
