I have not grown this variety, information only.
This corn has been commercially available in the US since at least 1845. The drought tolerant variety is good for flour, cornmeal and corn on the cob when young.
As stated above, it is primarily a decorative corn these days though.
100 to 110 days to maturity.
A traditional red field corn now used extensively as an ornamental.
