I've grown Shoe peg corn most of my adult life, and help mom and dad plant it and other corn as soon as I could walk. It is an amazing corn. And there is more than one use of what it produces as well as making an excellent trellis for corn field beans, Kentucky blue pole beans, along with Armenian cucumbers, which too are runners. Shoe peg (country gentleman) is a great sweet white corn. It is multi-purpose, but I like it on the table, steaming, lathered in real buttermilk butter, with a pone of corn bread on the side. I've also dried shoe peg corn, and ground it into flour. It is a very versatile corn (selu as the tsalagi would say), can be used in recipes, as well as a stand alone if more than one way.
I will save seed of it, and most apt to order a bit more next season.
