Hello, Green Cornbread!

The Oaxacan Green Dent Corn harvest is finally coming in! This is by far the most BEAUTIFUL corn that we have ever raised. Mature ears range in color from blacks to purples, and as they dry become progressively greener in hue. When ground up, this corn makes a lovely green cornmeal. A very drought tolerant and dependable variety. Generally 1-2 ears of corn per stalk. Ears range in size from 6-8+ inches long. Average 105-120 days to harvest.
