Do you know this corn?

Seneca Red Stalk is an heirloom variety with deep burgundy husks and kernels in red, black, purple, white, and yellow. I've seen it at the markets and at a pick-your-own farm. It's beautiful and supposedly very hardy. I would use it for decoration but I think it can be ground into cornmeal. Along with a giant pumpkin, it's on my long term gardening goals list.
