FLOUR CORN

(13 varieties to choose from) . Flour corn is best adapted to areas where heavy rains are not common. Rain at harvest time can mean a total crop lost as the softness of the kernels allows fungi  to grow rapidly

Use is for early season ornamental corn and can be ground into a very fine (almost wheat-like) flour.
