Corn, Maize- Manning White

Zea mays


  • Vegetable
  • White cobs

Australian heirloom variety.  Very tall plants that can grow up to 350cm and produce 1 large cob each.  Cobs have white kernels that can be eaten fresh when young or left to mature and be used for corn flour.  Very productive variety; was traditionally grown in the Manning Valley by dairy farmers as animal feed.
