Indigenous Seeds > Corn: Sweet

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.

Sweet corn is used for pinole, roasted and reconstituted, or fresh boiled or roasted. Kernel colors develop when the corn is past milk stage. Approx. 10g/50 seeds per packet.
