Extra nutritious sweet corn, dunked in the deepest maroon
The spectacularly red tone of this sweet corn was achieved by the brilliant Dr. Alan Kapuler (aka Mushroom) of Peace Seeds, who has developed new varieties on his small organic farm for decades. His work with this corn, of course, builds on centuries of selection done by indigenous people of the Americas. Our gardens are continuations not just of plant genetics, but of history. Step into this legacy with gratitude, care, and reverence: you are, through your garden, carrying on the work of countless ancestors.

Without doubt, Double Red is of the most beautiful corns we've ever seen. Deep red kernels, husk, foliage, cob, and silk. The dark kernels are naturally high in anthocyanins, antioxidants linked to dark red, purple and blue pigments. Delicious fresh, but can also be dried for cornmeal and flour. 1-2 ears per plant.

About Hudson Valley Seed Company
These folks are both farmers and storytellers. They are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. All of their seeds are open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO. They were one of the first companies to sign the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI), and remain committed to their values of sustainability.

They believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us. Every seed has a story, sometimes going back thousands of years. At Hudson Valley Seed Company, they aim to celebrate these stories, and they’ve found the best medium in which to do so is art. Each year, they commission artists to tell the story of a particular seed variety.
