About 100 seed or ¼ cup per packet

Warners – BIG yellow gourdseed type with a long season. This produces massive stalks that can be 10+ feet tall and almost as thick as soda cans, with large, thick cobs. A good silage/fodder corn that is also good for a fine yellow cornmeal. Matures in 120-130+ days, so is unsuitable for extreme short season areas, but a great yielder for those who can grow it.

This seed was grown by Stillwater Valley Farm and is placed in our store on consignment. Packets will come in Stillwater Valley Farm packets.
