We planted Papago on July 6, 2014 and boy was it every hot hot and dry. It was 95 degrees the day we planted. Every part of this soil is so dry that it is like dust, anywhere without irrigation.

And here we are all done. What I love about corn is that every part is useful. These cobs and the dried husks we used in the BBQ over the winter. So all that's left to tell you about is the flavor.
This is the best yellow corn flour! Superb taste, easy to grind. I was so impressed with this corn that I sent some to Glenn at Anson Mills and told him he had to taste this!
Many thanks to the Papago Indians for maintaining this corn and to Mark Millard of GRIN for recommending it for trial. This corn is PI 217410. This one's a keeper!
