This incredible flint/popcorn may be oldest corn variety grown in N. America! Carbon dating says this variety could be 4000 years old! Long, slim ears are filled with luminous amber to dark brown kernels. Great drought & heat tolerance. (Chapalote is adapted to southerly latitudes, and its performance farther north is unknown.) Chapaolote can be popped or used in pinole, polenta, and many other corn dishes, the meal being delightfully sweet. In the 1950s it was rediscovered in remote, northwestern Mexico. Since that time its superior qualities have captured the imagination and affections of archaeologists, gardeners and chefs alike!
