Chapalote "Pinole Maiz"
Zea mays. A stunning corn variety that at one point was widely grown from southern Arizona to Sinaloa, Mexico. One of the most ancient races of corn. A gorgeous deep brown corn, ranging to a light tan color. Small-kernels, with slender ears. Plants are very tall (ca. 10-12 ft) and late-maturing. Makes a sweet meal excellent for pinole. Can also be popped. A staff favorite and top seller! From our Seed Bank Collection.
