Corn/Maize IntroductionCultivation InstructionsSeed Saving Instructions
Domesticated in Mexico by 6,700 B.C., corn is a staple food and has many ritual uses. Flour corn is soft grinding corn used for cornmeal, elote (roasting corn or fresh tamale corn) and hominy (masa or nixtamal).In early spring or with summer rains, plant seeds 1 inch deep in rows, clumps, or basins. Needs rich soil and moisture. Heat, aridity and high winds can all reduce pollination.An annual, corn is wind-pollinated, and all varieties will cross. Hand-pollination (with bagging) or staggered planting times is necessary to keep seeds pure if multiple varieties are grown. Allow ears to mature and dry on the plant.
