This colorful, open-pollinated sweet corn was developed from a cross of the heirloom sweet corn, 'Luther Hill', and 'Painted Mountain' flour (Indian) corn. Because 'Painted Mountain' was selected from the Rocky Mountains, 'Painted Hill' is adapted for short growing seasons and can germinate better than others in cool, wet soils. The 7", multi-colored ears make a beautiful display, and every kernel is filled with robust, old-time corn flavor. Color is pale when fresh but intensifies when dried.
