Abnaki Rose Flour Corn
A beautiful flour corn used as a staple food crop by the Abnaki in New England
and unique to the Kennebec River Valley here in central Maine. Original stock seed
donated and saved from extinction by Albi Barden. Beautiful ears of corn with intense
patterns of dark rose splotches over white kernels. Good for making corn meal and flour.
Baxter Sweet Corn
A very old open-pollinated sweet corn variety developed
for canning factories in Maine. Canning factories (most located in
central and western Maine) were situated in farming communities
in order to have access to fresh corn and employed thousands of people
(mostly women and children) in the 19th century.
Ears are solid and fat with juicy sweet, bright yellow kernels. A
short plant habitat produces two ears dependably on each plant
during our short growing season. Stock seed donated and saved
from extinction by Will Bonsall.
