Heritage corn is incredibly diverse, and this variable variety produces dented kernels in shades ranging from yellow to verdant green. The plant was originally grown by the Zapotec people and it is still ground and used to make green tamales. It's not just the colour that's attractive. The flavour of flour made from Oaxacan green corn is much richer than anything coming from commercially produced maize.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Although you can skip this step, your seeds will come up much faster if you soak them overnight before sowing. Plant them directly in the place they're to grow, spacing them 20 cm apart.

    How to Harvest

    When the silky ends of the ears have turned dark-brown and dry, check how your kernels are developing. Cut the corn or pull downwards, twist and pull towards you. Dry your corn ears in a well ventilated, dry place. Best suited for maize production.
