Non-GMO, heirloom Rainbow Multicolors Flint Ornamental Corn Seeds from True Leaf Market grow ears of ornamental flint corn that can be used for decoration or as livestock feed. Kernels form in an array of colors, creating rainbow cobs that make a beautiful fall display. The seeds should be planted in close rows or in hills, which will help ensure good pollination and kernel formation. These heirloom corn seeds come from Mountain Valley Seed Co., which is a small, family-owned seed company known for supplying premium-quality seeds to both home growers and fresh market producers.
Corn can grow as tall as 6' and have a spread of 1 to 1-1/2', so you will need room to grow rainbow flint corn.
Directly sow the Rainbow Multicolors flint corn seeds into the ground when the soil reaches 65 degrees F or higher. You can plant corn in rows or in hills. If you plant the corn in rows, space the seeds 4" apart in rows that are 18" to 24" apart, then thin the seedlings to 12" apart when they reach 4" tall. If you plant the corn seed in hills, plant 3 to 4 seeds per hill and space the hills 12" apart.
Corn is a heavy feeder, so be sure to add rich compost before planting, plan for aggressive weed control, and consider adding fertilizer during the growing season.
After the corn has tasseled, leave the ears on the stalk to allow them to dry out. Harvest the ears by twisting them or cutting them off the stalk.
Various Uses for Rainbow Flint Ornamental Corn:
Flint corn is primarily used for decoration during the fall, but it can also be used as livestock feed. The outer shell on the kernels of flint corn is very hard, and the kernels have far less moisture than sweet corn, making them unpalatable for people to consume.
