description for "Corn: Zea mays, 'Rainbow Inca'"

Zea mays 'Rainbow Inca' was selected by Dr. Alan Kapuler in the 70s. This robust variety is a fascinating cross between a large, white, flat-seeded Peruvian chokelo; multicolored southwest native corns; and other heirloom sweet corns. 'Rainbow Inca' is delicious fresh or cooked. Corn comes on an 8-9" ear that increases in color as it ages, making a superb flour corn when mature. 7-9' stalk. Planting depth: 1-2 inches. Days to germination: 4-12 days. 80-95 days to maturity.
