Painted Mountain - early, About 100 seeds, extra hardy flour type, multicolored with some striped or spotted. Wide range of color possibilities, focused on the primaries (reds, blues, yellows). Bred by Dave Christensen in Montana to survive and produce early, deriving from the heritage of Mandan corns. This is the corn that started my seed stewardship adventures years ago. Approximately 85-90 days to maturity.

      • If harvesting it for sweet, or milk stage, wait until corn silk is dark brown all the way to the husk.
