100 days – I developed this variety back in the early 1980’s as a part of my senior project in college. My goal then and now is to have 100% ears that have red ears with red-brown kernels. I could go into the long genetic reason for why you will get some ears that are not red with red-brown kernels, but simply expect 75%+ of the red/red-brown kernels. The remainder will be a colorful ornamental corn. Plants grow 6 to 7 feet tall.
