Dent Corn

95 to 100 days — Although this dent corn variety can be ground for feed or flour, it is primarily grown by home gardeners and market growers for its unique, ornamental value. Green corn kernels are actually fairly uncommon.

The ears are large with a mix of bright green and golden-yellow kernels making it a popular novelty item with fans of a certain American tractor brand or the NFL team in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Green and Gold, or Green and Yellow, are also the school colors for many colleges, universities, and high schools, around the country. They are even the colors of our founder's high school alma mater in Petaluma, California (go Casa Grande Gauchos!)

'Green and Gold Dent' is a selection of 'Oaxacan Green' dent corn made by Bisek Gardens in Minnesota. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 100 seeds.
