Creamy! Buttery! The best popcorn! Amish Butter corn has 6” conical heads with both rice and pearl type kernels. Also can be ground coarsely or made into masa (hominy) and flour it can then be used for polenta, tamales, grits, breads, cookies. Pre–1885 white-kerneled seed maintained by the Pennsylvania Dutch and brought into the market in 1988 by Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. Selected over time since then by our friends at Ayers Creek Farm in Oregon. 100 days.
Care: Plant 4-6″ apart in rows 24″ apart in full sun and rich fertile soil. Corn is wind-pollinated and individual varieties should be planted in blocks of at least 4′ by 4′ for best ear formation.
