"This maize was collected by Tony West from an elderly Cherokee Woman near Tuckasegee, North Carolina. Plants can reach 15 feet tall, 8-10 rows, and 12-15 inch cobs. Both the grain and cob are white. This variety makes great flour and soup. This variety will open your mind about what maize is and will introduce you to the spiritual side of the crop. Enjoy this one, it is very special." -Buffalo Seed Company
