Heirloom / Open Pollinated
Non GMO Corn
and Popcorn

Before World War II, almost all field corn grown was heirloom / open pollinated, but by the end of the war hybrid corn had really taken over in the midwest. A few diehards did hang onto the old heirloom / open pollinated corn varieties. These were replanted every year and reselected for improved strains. Today we have about 12 to 15 fairly common varieties left and these are all fairly good since they have stood the test of time. A very interesting difference between Heirloom / Open Pollinated corn and hybrid corn is that when you grow any given hybrid corn in a given area for a number of years, maybe 6 or sometimes up to 10, it just sort of fizzles out. On the other hand, if you grow Heirloom / Open Pollinated corn and do your own seed selecting, it gets better.   For more information about Corn - Click Here

Corn
Broom Corn (Mixed Colors) (Sorghum bicolor)
100-110 days.       Not actually a true corn, rather it is an ornamental sorghum, very popular for decorations and crafts. Mixed Colors Broom Corn is a tall annual grass that looks like a corn plant, except that it makes fan-shaped seed heads instead of ears, appearing at the top of the plant in place of a tassel. The seeds are loved by birds, and are also edible and can be sprouted, cooked, popped, or ground into flour. Stalks grow 7-9' in height, with seed heads being 24-36" long. This Mixed Colors Broom Corn seed is, as the name implies, a mixture of many different broom corn varieties. The colors that predominate in this mix include gold, bronze, black, burgundy, red, white/cream, natural, and all shades of these colors. The broom heads can be harvested for brooms or ornamental uses anytime after the seed head develops. Harvesting and drying the seed heads at various stages of development, result in varied appearances in the color of seed. As the plant matures, the seed heads will deepen in color and the seeds will become heavier and shiny, when dried they make a beautiful and unique addition to flower arrangements. The stalks when dried make excellent brooms, tie a few together to make a strong and long lasting broom.
