Description
Boone County White
115 days — It was once one of the most popular white dent corn varieties grown in the corn belt. A heavy producer with huge ears, it was always winning prizes at corn shows.[1]

It grows large (ten to twelve inch) ears with eighteen to twenty four rows of deep, pure white kernels on huge (ten to twelve foot), leafy plants. It makes a good fodder crop.

This variety was originated by Mr. James Riley of Boone County, Indiana. In 1876, Mr. Riley began selection from a large coarse variety of corn grown in Boone county commonly known as the 'White Mastodon.' The 'White Mastodon' seed was planted in a separate field from other varieties, never allowed to cross, being changed in type by selection. After several years of selection he gave his new type of corn the name 'Boone County White.'[2] Each ounce is approximately 90 seeds.
