double red sweet corn
This seed packet is a fun item to tuck in a card for that gardener in your life! The spectacularly red tone of this sweet corn was achieved by Alan Kapuler (aka Mushroom), 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.
