Corn/Maize IntroductionCultivation InstructionsSeed Saving Instructions
Domesticated in Mexico by 6,700 B.C., corn is a staple food and has many ritual uses. Flour corn is soft grinding corn used for cornmeal, elote (roasting corn or fresh tamale corn) and hominy (masa or nixtamal).In early spring or with summer rains, plant seeds 1" deep. If rows, plant seeds 12" apart; or 3-4 seeds 18" apart in basins (for arid regions) or hills. Needs rich soil & moisture. Heat, aridity & high winds can all reduce pollination.An wind-pollinated annual, all varieties will cross. Hand-pollination or staggered planting times necessary to keep seeds pure if multiple varieties grown. Allow ears to mature and dry on the plant.
