Wild Violet Hybrid Sweet Corn

First ever purple-and-white sweet corn!

  • Eye-catching color
  • Sweet, with lots of corn flavor
  • Higher antioxidants than other sweet corn
  • Color deepens with cooking
  • Bred using traditional, non-GMO practices
We've grown lots of colorful corn in our test gardens, but Wild Violet is the first to combine dazzling purple and white kernels with a creamy, sweet corn flavor. When you sink your teeth into these kernels, you'll experience a juicy sweetness and creamy, old-timey corn flavor. Absolutely delicious! It's also higher in antioxidants than other sweet corn varieties. A groundbreaking hybrid, Wild Violet produces ears that are about 56 percent purple and 44 percent white per cob. The percentage of purple kernels increases with maturity. Wild Violet also retains its color without bleeding--and the color actually deepens when cooked for a few minutes. Wild Violet was bred using traditional, non-GMO breeding practices.
