These delicious, gold to orange cobs, also known as Eight Row Flint Corn, originated in New England and were cultivated by northeastern Native American tribes for hundreds of years before making it over to Italy and then back again. Otto File's exceptional, creamy taste, high carotenoid and protein content made it a prized polenta corn in Italy for many years. This variety was passed through many hands before making it to our trial gardens. After growing and tasting it, we decided we had to make sure this variety doesn't disappear. Yields long, narrow 8- 12 inch cobs, one per plant. There is some variation in color and plant height. Very limited supply.
