Grown for centuries in southern Mexico by Zapatec Indians to make a regional favourite green-flour tamale. Or just grow to use the cobs in gorgeous displays.

Seed count varies ranging from 20-30 seeds per pack depending on supplier - please call ahead for confirmation.


Nixtamalising is an ancient method of soaking the dry kernels in a solution of water and slaked lime (calcium hydroxide).

Lime can be substituted with hardwood ash or even baking soda.

Please note: grow sweet corn isolated from maize corn as they can cross pollinate.
Corn is also best grown in blocks rather than single rows for good wind pollination.
