Grew this from all yellow seed, plant is only about 3 feet tall. I was surprised with the color of the ear!

I can help out with possibly why, and give you a link or two to heirloom maize (Flint/Dent)corn with named seed varieties, but it just looks like a seed reverted /mutated genetically to some ancestor.
