Corn Gaspé (Zea mays)
There are very old mentions of this corn which grew in the Gaspé region and throughout the territory of the east coast of Canada. It was originally grown by members of the Mi'gmaq First Nation. Jacques Cartier is said to have even observed plantations of it in 1534. This small popcorn type corn is particularly early and its cobs form in less than three months. Cobs measuring 10-12 cm with 8 rows of grains.
