Cave Corn

  • Model: trial packet
  • Units in Stock: 20


These tiny cobs were found in a cave in Colorado. How many years they had been there is unknown, but the cool, dry environment would have preserved them for some time. Only a tiny fraction of the seed germinated but those grew into unusual maroon stalks with three slender ears on each stalk. Last year, only small samples of this, perhaps the rarest corn seed on Earth, is available. This season I have more and can send 60 seeds so we can maintain the genetic diversity.
