Hickory King corn originates from Appalachia in the late 1800s. Prized for its large thumbnail-sized kernels, it grows on stalks 12’ high - literally as high as an elephant’s eye! Hickory King is particularly good made into hominy and masa. Its large kernel size makes for easy processing and cleaning. It is also extremely well suited for cornmeal, grits, polenta, and distilling!
