Cherokee White Flour Corn: Appalachian Heirloom
A rare variety in need of preservation.


Cherokee White Flour Corn Seedling

A happy corn seedling coming out of the ground. The big leaves next to it are bean plants.

Corn, Beans and Nettle

This photo shows Cherokee Corn, bean (either Greasy or October), and Stinging Nettle plants.

Rain

A nice photo of rain drops on a leaf of a corn plant.

Corn Plants

These corn plants are growing with Pokeweed, Stinging Nettle and Jewelweed (Touch Me Not). They are growing below my chicken and duck coop so they get a lot of nitrogen.

Corn Sayings

There is that old-fashioned expression: "Knee high by the Fourth of July."

"Whoever makes two ears of corn, or two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before, deserves better of mankind, and does more essential service to his country than the whole race of politicians put together." -Jonathan Swift

An old wives tale is that the corn husk layers predict how cold the winter will be. The more layers of leaves, the colder. And how high up on the plant the corn cob is tells how many inches of snow will fall!

Cherokee White Flour Corn Tassels

Tassels are the male part of the corn plant. It produces pollen to fertilize the corn cobs. Wind distributes the pollen.

You can see the chicken and duck coop behind the plants.
