Seeds - Maize Corn Red Aztec

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. Sow after frost.

Harvest and eat when young or allow to mature for grinding into flour.

Please note: We cannot send this item to WA or Tasmania.

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.
