Painted Mountain Corn 2023 seed - 2.8 oz (approx. 270 kernels)

Painted Mountain Corn 2023 seed - 2.8 oz (approx. 270 kernels)

SKU: PMC23-2.8


Descending from 70 rugged Native N. American heirloom Indian corns, Painted Mountain is a robust, multi-purpose, high-protein and highly nutritional food corn. Dave Christensen began its cultivation over 50 years ago, to feed his homesteader family in the challenging climates of Montana. The kernel’s soft starch grinds easily for fine-baking and the tenderest cornbread! Painted Mountain is known for fast maturity, resiliency in drought and recovery from climate stress. Its ancestors kept Montana homesteaders alive through The Great Drought & Depression of the 1930’s. This naturally diverse, open-pollinated corn can adapt to varied and changing climates. Small farmers, in the desert and mountainous regions of the world, grow Painted Mountain corn year after year.

    Plant the kernels directly into a well prepared seedbed, May 15 or earlier (bred to recover from early frosts). Plant 1-3 inches deep & 10-12 inches apart within rows. Plant in a block for dependable pollination, away from other corns if you want to save your own seed. Corn needs full sunshine. Control weeds early. Depending on heat, corn dries in 90-110 days. Allow kernels to harden, and husks to dry completely, on the plants before picking. Harvest before a hard freeze.


    Dave’s trademark SEED WE NEED® ensures that this seed is grown and selected by Dave Christensen who created it and continues to advance its genetics every year. This seed is grown in partnership with organic farmers in Montana. These organic farms are the only place in the world where Painted Mountain is grown for seed under Dave’s supervision.
