Hickory King White Dent Corn

Best corn for hominy.


The best choice for making hominy. Kernels are the largest of any white corn we've tried. Skin comes off easily after soaking. Very vigorous stalks reach 10–13' tall, and large, 9–11" ears are tightly covered with husks that protect kernels from earworm and beetle damage. Normally produces two ears per stalk. Two ears of dried Hickory King weigh about 1 lb.! 115 DAYS. Seed Counts: A packet of 250 sweet corn seeds sows a 50' row. A 1/2 lb. packet of sweet corn seeds sows a 200' row.
