NASR > 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.

We suggest planting a minimum of 15-30 plants.  With less you are likely to get poor pollination, and few kernels on your ears of corn.  100 plants or more are best for pollination and for good genetic diversity in the seeds you save from your harvest.  You can learn more about growing corn (including hand pollination) here.

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