Brilliantly colored kernels in shades of red to purple, with deep red stalks and husks with orange silk. Bred by Dylana Kapuler and Mario DiBenedetto of Peace Seedlings, Double Red is a delicious early sweet corn that’s excellent for eating fresh from the cob, but also good for drying and grinding to make traditional corn flour (dating back to its Hopi ancestry). High yields from short stalks. 100 days from transplant. OP
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.
