$3.95

Family:  Grass (Poaceae)

Annual.  90 days to maturity.

Robust, drought-tolerant flour corn cultivar selected over many generations by the Hopi tribespeople of the American SW.  Plants 3.5 to 5  feet tall.  Ears to 1 foot long, usually 2 per stalk.   The kernals remain ivory colored until dry-down, whereupon they develop their stunning blue-black lustre.  Plants prefer bright sun.  Do not over water during early growth phases lest the plants become too leggy.  Heap soil around the developing stems to prohibit lodging (that’s when the plants fall over in strong wind).
