Corn, Hopi Blue Tall (Zea mays) seeds, Organic
Family: Grass (Poaceae)
Annual. 90 to 110 days to maturity.
Tall version of the Hopi Blue Corn. Vigorous plant needs fertile soil, a full sun position and plenty of water. Unlike the short form, this is not a drought tolerant plant. Advantage of this strain includes uncommon vigor and very large ears, large-size kernels. Plants 6 to 8 feet tall. Direct seed in spring when soil warms up. Thin to 12 inches apart. Heap soil around the developing stems to prohibit lodging (that’s when the plants fall over in strong wind). Ears to 12 inches long, sometimes 3 per stalk. The kernels remain ivory colored until dry-down, whereupon they develop their stunning blue-black luster. The corn produces plenty of medicinal silk, and the husks are good for making tamales.
