Days to Maturity: 130


This is a flour/flint/dent landrace of corn which I use for grits and hominy to make tortillas. The tallest stalks are around 12 feet and it has a long blooming and harvest period. Most plants hold their ears at about 6 feet up on the stalk. Most plants produce 1 full ear and a few produce 2 smaller ears. It would work great if grown in milpa. I plant seeds around the beginning of June and finish harvesting the first week of September or so. This is a beautiful landrace with a lot of variation and adaptability.

Story of this Seed:

This landrace is stewarded through Native Seed Search, https://www.nativeseeds.org/, which is located in Arizona. I am immensely grateful for them providing this corn to the public as it is one of the few corns which has done very well for me in North Florida. All proceeds from purchases of this seed will be donated to Native Seed Search to help them grow out other important Native American crops.

Growing Tips:

Keeping the corn diverse will increase its ability to adapt to your location. This is a long season corn, but there are a few plants which produce early in the season. Growing larger populations, or intermittently introducing new genetics in smaller populations, allows for quicker adaptation and prevents inbreeding depression if saving seed.
