Searching for Hickory Cane Corn seed to grow at several historical sites I provide seed/plant varieties. This is suppose to be different from Hickory King Corn. I have been unable to locate a source.
Hickory Cane Corn is typically eight rows of very large kernels, some as big as a thumb nail. At one time it was grown extensively in the Appalachian Mountain regions for white corn meal, hominy and shine (as it had a higher sugar content than field corn).
