White Eagle Corn's young ears are a substantial, flavorful sweet roasting corn; mature they're a good blue flour, dent or field corn. Very large ears range from all blue to some with a majority of white kernels.
This beloved Cherokee corn was brought over the Trail of Tears and adapted well to the needs of America's early farmers. High ear placement eased handpicking and tall stalks provided good quantities of fodder for winter cattle feed.

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.
