Sweet Corn

75 days — 'Painted Hill' is a very interesting, open-pollinated sweet corn variety developed for gardeners living in areas with cooler and shorter growing seasons. Each ear reaches about seven inches in length and filled with multicolored kernels on stalks that reach five to six feet in height. Keep in mind that like most old sweet corn varieties, it is not like a modern super-sweet that dominates the palate with sweet at the expense of flavor. These ears are sweet, yet very flavorful.

'Painted Hill' was bred by Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds who stabilized a cross between Dave Christensen's genetically diverse 'Painted Mountain' grain corn and the old heirloom, 'Luther Hill' sweet corn. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 150 seeds.
Perfect germ, indifferent to weather, no pest or disease problems. Short, resilient stalks, 2 or 3 very nice ears per. Meaty flavored, not too sweet; firm kernels, fairly large and almost irregular, beautiful varicolor results. Pollination quite good but not complete, probably due to weather, but ripened a bit later than expected. Will not be dabbling with any other sweet corn varieties, as this is the one for me.

Painted Hills Corn
I planted this for the first time last year (2012). I found the corn very flavorful. When cooked the kernels retain their variety of colors & when canned the kernels turn yellow.
