|'Tuscarora' is an heirloom corn, generally ready for harvest 120 days after sowing. It is used almost exclusively for corn flour. The plants are 6 to 8 feet tall, and produce 12 inch red cobs with 8 rows of large white kernels. The young corn can be used as sweet corn. The flour resultant from the mature kernals is white and extremely soft. 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.
