Corn/Maize Success Story

We received this seed as part of our corn/maize project. With many heirloom varieties no longer being grown in Australia we felt there was a need to find varieties, get them grown out and re-distribute seeds amongst home gardeners to ensure they are easily available into the future. Manning White Maize was bred as a cattle feed in the Manning Valley with the area being strong in the dairy industry. This variety was almost lost for good but a local farmer had a small amount of seed that he grew year by year. We decided to grow this variety and it produced huge cobs laden with large white kernels. It was easy to see why it was used as animal feed with the sheer volume it produced. Surprisingly we found ourselves eating fresh cobs like sweet corn, it isn't as sweet but it was very tasty and perfect for the BBQ. We will continue this project into the future and we are always on the lookout for unusual varieties or people willing to grow a crop for us.
