This beautiful flour corn belongs to the Ojibwe (Chippewa), Bodéwadmi (Potawatomi), and Odawa (Ottawa) peoples of the Walpole Island First Nation.  Known as "Bkejwanong" ("where the waters divide") in Anishinaabemowin, the territory is located along the northeast shores of Lake St. Clair near Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, Canada. 

8-10 ft. tall stalks are strong and highly-productive, and minimal lodging on our farm. (Lodged stalks are culled, and no seeds saved from these plants). Large ears are full of beautiful, creamy white, and occasional purple kernels.

Here we mulch our Walpole Island White Corn with straw, undersow with Ojibwe or Potawatomi beans, and inoculate it all with winecap mushrooms (Stropharia rugosoannulata) for reliably productive, sustainable, and multi-functional yields from the same beds.

Planting depth: 1.5 - 2 in.
Plant spacing: 12 in. (1 ft.)
Row spacing: 2 ft.

To improve pollination and seed set for fuller ears, plant in blocks of 4-8 rows, not in a long, individual row. Hill soil liberally around growing stalks to promote growth of stabilizing roots, if needed.
