Don't be an anti yellow/white bigot, LOL. Heirloom yellow and white corns are the varieties cultivated prior to the development of high yield hybrids. In some cases they are the ancestors of modern hybrids, in others they are species that do not suit the needs of commercial agriculture.

You're not going to find an single strain of corn that is not the product of at least low-tech gene manipulation. Native people carefully selected and cross-breed corn varieties to produce cultivars every bit as tailored to their needs as those produced to support large-scale farming. Our ancestors breed literally thousands of strains designed to give the best yields and to resist the most pests and diseases in various climates. Corn is a product of both the Creator and man.

That said... I have no personal experience with this business, but they seem to sell many varieties of corn.

Yeap, I can't get it here but we had it in the markets in NM. It took a bit more cooking than the canned, but no where near as much as the dried.
