|'Seneca Hominy', also known as 'Ha-Go-Wa' or 'White Flint' Corn, is an heirloom variety with a rich history amongst Seneca Native Americans. This corn thrives almost anywhere in North America, growing 6 to 7 feet tall, coming to tassle 90 days after sowing. The plants yield two 8 inch cobs. The leaves are narrow, producing minimal shade and allowing other crops, such as pumpkins, to be grown around them. Typical cobs show twelve rows of white kernels. Historically, the Seneca have used this variety for hominy and cornmeal. Originally domesticated by Mesoamericans, it is a staple food with many other traditional uses. Home gardeners love to grow corn, and there are many varieties suited to different climates. Plant seeds 1 inch deep in rows or clumps, two weeks after the last frost date. Corn needs rich soil, full sun and adequate moisture to produce good ears. It is wind pollinated, so if you want to save seed, you will need to either stagger the planting time of different varieties, or plant them 1/4 mile apart. Water deeply.
