Hickory King
115 days — These plants grow 7˝ to nine feet tall. The ears range from seven to eight inches long with ten to twelve rows of large white kernels. This is a roasting corn variety that is also used for grits, meal, and tortilla flour and in the South it is popular for hominy.

'Hickory King' was introduced by A. O. Lee of Hickory, Virginia who developed the variety out of a single ear of corn that he had received from a friend in 1880.

W. Atlee Burpee described it in the 1888 Farm Annual as follows: "This new white field corn has proved entirely distinct from all other varieties, and has unquestionably the largest grains, with the smallest cob of any white corn ever introduced."  According to their 1922 annual, it is best suited for areas south of Pennsylvania. Each ounce is approximately 55 seeds.
