What are the pros? Fun, black, super tall corn
What are the cons? Plant real, real early
I planted this inside in April, every kernel Germinated plus one kernel had two plants (twins?). They grew like crazy, a couple died before transplanting in May to a low spot on the edge of the hill. By the end of July using a ladder I measured them at 12 feet tall still no sign of corncobs forming. they were tipping over, I staked them with 5 foot stakes and tied them but noticed they were forming roots at every joint, the longest roots closest to the ground. This got me to wondering if the Aztec's planted this corn in pits or trenches and then filled in the dirt around the stocks to hold them up. using a mixture of manure, vermiculite and soil I filled in the low spot.
Wind came in August and snapped two off above where they were staked, knocking over others which I retied up. I created a terrace to fill in more dirt. Cobbs started forming
Late October, Igot a few sparse developed kernels to replant in March and some excellent dark purple husk natural dye coloring.
