This beautiful green southern Mexican variety yields 5-7 inch ears on tall stalks.  Enjoy its beauty as a decoration or grind into a delicious green flour.  Our favorite way to enjoy it is to make nixtamal and use it to make tortillas or hominy.

This variety is one that we give the gift of the seed gratefully at no charge.

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
