Black Aztec

This rare corn was said to have been grown by the Aztec people for many years as a dual purpose staple sweet/ flour corn.   Recently has been grown in Mexico as flour corn. Ears are 6 to 8 inches long produced on a 5 to 6 ft. tall plant stalk.  Two to three ears per stalk.  Can be eaten as sweet corn with a great flavor when eaten during it's short milk stage before kernels have tinged to blue spotted in color.  Can be used as flour corn when allowed to dry and kernels will appear black to blue in color.  Very prolific corn plants with vigorous growth and an exceptionally vibrant color.

How to Save Seeds

Corn will cross pollinate with other corn varieties and readily. Therefore it is recommended to separate by at least 1 mile. Let seeds dry in stalk but don't tarry in fact make sure to harvest as soon as dry. Also make sure to collect from at least 100 separate corn plants to have a healthy batch of corn next year. Rub corn off cobs when dry and store.
