Corn/Maize IntroductionCultivation InstructionsSeed Saving Instructions
Domesticated in Mexico by 6,700 B.C., corn is a staple food and has many ritual uses. Sweet corn is used for pinole, roasted and reconstituted, or fresh boiled. Kernel colors develop when the corn is past milk stage.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 annual, corn is wind-pollinated, and all varieties will cross. Hand-pollination (with bagging) or staggered planting times is necessary to keep seeds pure if multiple varieties are grown. Sweet corn allowed to dry on the stalk during high temperatures can ferment, ruining the seed.
