Indigenous Seeds > Corn: Dent

Zea mays. Domesticated by Meso-Americans along the Rio Balsas of Mexico by at least 6,700 BC, corn is a staple food and has many ritual uses. Various kernel colors are selected for ceremonies and feast foods, and pollen is collected for ceremonial and medicinal purposes.

Mature kernels of dent corn are dented due to flour heart and flint sides. Used for elote (roasted), posole, masa, tamales, tortillas, corn beer and animal feed. Approx. 15g/50 seeds per packet.
