Seneca Redstalker is a favorite of ours cor its beautiful and decorative red and purple stalks. We like to use the husk for dolls and dyes which work great for fabric and basketry. Seneca Redstalker was developed by Robeson Seed Farms Hall in the 1980s from the 'Seneca Indian' variety. Seneca Redstalker makes fine cornmeal and great decorations as its seeds are just as beautiful as its husk.

    Harvesting -  

    • Plan harvest in early morning or in the evening. 

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