This variety should be isolated from any new varieties of corn all the time at least a mile. this corn should be dry farmed in hills. do not separate the colors, heights, or flowering times or anything else for that matter, the genepool has been mixed and they now need to stay together or they will weaken and die. this corn is grown with beans and squash the three sisters style. you will have better luck with late planted squash nowadays. bears single ears up to seven per plant when grown correctly in hills of three sisters.
