Calhoun Creek Red
Dent Corn

103 to 109 days — 'Calhoun Creek Red' dark purple stalks have green leaves, reach about seven feet tall, and produce ears that set about four feet off of the ground. It exhibits above average early vigor, stand-ability, and disease tolerance. The ears are six inches long with purple cobs containing twelve to sixteen rows of dark kernels that are about the color of black berries. This coloration is due to the a high content of the antioxidant, Anthocyanin. The kernels are primarily dent-type but some flint will be found mixed on the ears.

Can be eaten fresh as sweet corn or allowed to mature and dry. When it is ground, it makes a beautiful lavender colored corn meal that can be used to make corn bread, corn cakes, corn pudding and fried mush. It also makes very pretty purple corn cob jelly and "chicha morada."[1] Chickens, sheep, and pigs (as well as rodents!) prefer this corn to any white or yellow grain varieties. The dried husks and stalks make pretty fall décor and sell fast at farmers markets.

'Calhoun Creek Red' dent corn contains a diverse genetic base from "corn belt" varieties, as well as from Europe and Mexico, and should adapt wherever early and medium maturity corn is grown. Each pack contains ounce, which is approximately 115 seeds.

Additional Information:
  1. Chicha morada is a Peruvian beverage made from purple corn. It is typically made by boiling the corn with pineapple, cinnamon, cloves, and sugar. Its use and consumption date back to the pre-colonial era of Peru, prior even to the creation of the Inca empire. It is a very common drink found in many Bolivian and Peruvian restaurants and markets. Traditionally, chicha morada does not contain alcohol.
