Red Aztec corn has a large cob and glorious dark red kernels.
A hard to find heirloom variety, this corn is a nutritious summer vegetable, originating from the Americas.
A very heavy feeder which will require good soaking in dry weather.
To save seeds, plant each variety at least 2 kilometres apart or at least at one month intervals to prevent cross pollination. Keeping varieties pure and saving seed is now very important. Plant in blocks as plants need to be close for wind pollination. If seed is left on the surface each night until germination the rodents may not feel the need to dig up seeds. Sow after frost.
Harvest and eat when young or allow to mature for grinding into flour.
