Corn Cob Tips and Butts

(Zea mays)

After harvest, when we hand shell each corn cob individually to create our seed stock, we select kernels from the center of each cob, and do not include those kernels at the tip or butt end of the cob. The center kernels of a cob capture the optimal point of a corn plot's pollination cycle - a highly desired trait for our seed stock. While still plant-able, we elect to put the kernels of the cob's ends into our "eat jar" for grinding, nixtamalization, or other personal use. We've decided to offer this Tips & Butts pack of kernels for those that want the opportunity to trial using the corn before deciding to devote garden space to a plot. If planted, the pack makes a fine wildlife food plot.

We are still tweaking this offering - if it is something of interest to you please send us an email (Seeds [at] GreatLakesStapleSeeds [dot] com).


Important note: This seed pack is assembled in our barn which has not been inspected by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development. We do not use pesticides or herbicides in the growing or processing of our seeds.
