Garland Flint Corn is one of the earliest Northern flint corns.
With 7-8' plants having 7-8" ears with 8 rows, most ears are bright-yellow, some solid deep-red, selected by George Garland of New Hampshire, has since become a family heirloom. Grows well in cool, short season Northern climates.
It has good roots and stalks as well as good standability at harvest time. The red and yellow ears are larger and individual kernels deeper providing a larger yield.

Plant corn directly in warm and rich soil 1 or 2 weeks after last frost in spring. Germination is best in soil temperature of at least 60F. At 55F., it will be retarded, and at 50F. there is minimal germination.
Plant 1"-2" deep and thin to 8"-10" apart in rows 30"- 36" apart. Planting 4-row blocks ensures better pollination than 2 long rows. Corn is ready when the silk on the ears is brown. Old timers say to put the pot on to boil as you go out to pick corn. The sooner it is cooked the tastier it is.
