85 to 95 days — 'Earth Tones' dent corn produces ears that are eight to ten inches long on stalks that grow from seven to ten feet in height. The interesting trait about 'Earth Tones' dent is its multitude of beautiful, muted, soft, earth-tone colors that include shades of gold, bronze, mauve, pink, green, browns, blues and many shades in between. The kernels are not shiny or intense like typical ornamental "Indian Corn" varieties.
The beautiful ears can be used ornamentally for decorations, ground into flour as a food staple, or used as animal feed. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 90 to 95 seeds.
