(Zea mays) Grown for centuries by the Zapotec Indians of
southern Mexico where it is used to make green
flour tamales. Traditionally grown with squash and
beans which climb up the corn stalks. Drought
resistant, sturdy, 7' plants produce emerald green
kernels on 10" ears. 75-100 days.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost
has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant
in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin
seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and
does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of
water. ± 1,500 seeds/lb
