Heirloom varieties of "Indian corn" thought to be similar to the maize grown by Caddo ancestors. The ear to the left is 7.5 inches long (19 centimeters). At Lake Naconiche, maize was recovered in flotation samples at the Tallow Grove, Foggy Fork, and Beech Ridge sites in 13th to 15th century A.D. contexts. Photograph from Richard I.
