Indian Corn

Indian Corn
Zea mays indurate
Synonyms: calico corn, flint corn

Fall is here with the arrival of Indian Corn. This is an open-pollinated type of corn and each kernel may have different genes and colors then its neighboring ones. It also has very low moisture content, which protects it from freezing more than standard corn.

The highlight yesterday as being able to handle this authenticate 1967 Jimi Hendrix Fender Stratocaster at the Big E. There was a picture of him playing it at the exhibit. Conservative value 100,000 to $200,000 US dollars.
