Indigenous Seeds > Corn: Flour

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.

Flour corn is soft grinding corn used for cornmeal, elote (roasting corn or fresh tamale corn) and hominy (masa or Nixtamal). Approx. 14g/50 seeds per packet except where noted.
