Gardeners plant dent corn primarily to dry-mill. The Zapotec of southern Mexico, to whom this corn is attributed, would have grown this corn to create green flour for their tamales. The cob is heavy and round with hues of emerald green, lime, and chartreuse kernels. This variety entered the U.S. seed trade during the 1980s. It is drought-resistant and has sturdy stalks. 75-100 days. ±1,500 seeds/lb.

Rows Apart: 36-48"

Instructions - 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.
