Very large ears range from all blue to some with a majority of white kernels. This Cherokee Blue and White corn was brought by the Cherokee over the Trail of Tears. Well adapted to the needs of America's early farmers: high ear placement facilitated handpicking and tall stalks provided good quantities of fodder for winter feeding of cattle.
