Zea mays. From an extensive collection made in the late 1800's by an early prospector in western Arizona. Originally grown by the Yuman (Quechan) Indians along the lower Colorado River. Yellow kernels on small ears. Delicious roasted - a staff favorite! Also makes a great green corn tamale. The short plants mean it is relatively fast maturing. From our Seed Bank Collection.
