Winnebago corn (Zea mays)

This rare variety of corn was shared with us by Steve McCumber, founder of the Haudenosaunee Seed Savings Group. It comes from the Winnebago nation who cultivated it for generations on their lands, today Wisconsin and Illinois. With a beautiful cream color sprinkled with bluish spots, this corn is a flour variety. You can of course try the experiment of eating it fresh, but its taste is less sweet and its texture more fibrous than the varieties that we find on our stalls in summer. On the other hand, it will be excellent for cooking cornbread, polenta or hominy. Old and rare variety, please share!

Latin name: Zea mays
Common names: Flour corn, Indian corn (Quebec)
English: Corn, Winnebago Spotted
Family: Poaceae

Rare, share!
