'Corn, Maize- Oaxacan Green' seeds

Zea mays


  • Ornamental green cobs
  • Heirloom variety
  • Can be used to make green cornmeal and tortillas

An heirloom variety from southern Mexico. Tall (200cm) plants produce medium sized cobs with luminous green, dented kernels. Colours on each cob are a combination of bronze, yellow and bright emerald green. Dent corn has kernels with distinctive indentations that develop as the cobs dry. Maize can be used to make green cornmeal which is an ingredient in corn chips, cornbread, tortillas and tamales. It has a rich, nutty but creamy flavour.
