Corn – Polka Dot

Corn – Polka Dot

from Freemans Reach

This has White/yellow kernels.   Note that when there are hot dry conditions on pollination the tip of the corn may be missing.

It’s the variety is called Polka Dot or Butter and Cream.  It is NOT genetically modified – but simply a random pattern.

Every kernel is individually pollinated (mostly by pollen floating on wind), which is why some end up white and others yellow.  They are sweeter than regular corn (and I tried some this morning). Isn’t nature amazing.
