Po'suwaegeh Blue Corn

110 days. This Native American heirloom corn from Pueblo Pojoaque, pronounced P ō 'hwä k a, in northern New Mexico, is traditionally grown to make blue corn atole (see recipe for atole). Po'suwaegeh is the Tewa name for "Place where there is abundant water" and there is actually such a place, about 20 miles north of Santa Fe, in a valley running into the Rio Grande, where an ancient pueblo, which had almost disappeared, found its place of rebirth. Growing Po'suwaegeh Blue corn played a pivotal role in the revival of this community. The Pueblo at Pojoaque and Baker Creek Seeds are proud to share this treasure with gardeners and farmers. Deep blue kernels on a 10" - 12" ear. Strong and tall stalks. If you like the idea of growing Baker Creek's Oaxacan Green dent corn then including Po'suwaegeh Blue corn in your order is a must!


Po'suwaegeh Blue Corn Atole
 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk (almond milk, soy milk)
  • 4 teaspoons fine-ground Po'suwaegeh Blue cornmeal
 
Mix cold water and milk. Stir in cornmeal and continue stirring until it is blended.

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. The atole will thicken as it nears the boiling point.
 

Remove from heat, let cool slightly before adding flavor.

A wide variety of flavors can be used, such as: honey, maple syrup, anise seeds, crushed juniper berries, red chile.

 

Your cup of Atole can also be garnished with squash blossoms or edible flowers like nasturtium.

What are the pros? Tolerates drought, fast grower

What are the cons? None

Review:

I seeded just one of these, along my fence. It is 8 feet tall, and produced one giant ear of corn. I hand pollinated, and can feel the kernels. I will be letting it dry on the stalk for seed.

What are the pros? Very distinctive

What are the cons? Needs a long season

Review:

Initially I thought this corn, although it had grown well would not make ears as come August there was no sign, however it has made good ears in the last few weeks, quickly and to harvest. Three points for growing it in cooler climates - sow early as it needs a long season, take note if the tassels havent appeared at the same time as the fronds you might have to save the pollen and hand pollinate and finally only have one ear per stalk rather than two as then you will get a good corn rather than two mediocre ones. Thanks for the horticulture people at baker creek for their advice when I thought it wasn't going to make ears!

What are the pros? Nothing really

What are the cons? Unproductive

Review:

This is not a corn for cool areas. Corn grew well and planted over 200 plants to assure good pollination. But I only got about 1/4 of the plants to produce cobs and of these only about 1/4 matured. Some years we get very hot summers but not in 2015. It was warm (but not hot) till late October though with no frost. But I think this corn needs heat. Had wonderful peppers in the same garden so it's not the site. This is definitely one for the Southwest, and possibly other hot - long-season areas. Of those that matured the cobs were scrawny, which may indicate inbreeding depression. But you can't rule out climate.

Good yield on the surviviors

What are the pros? Handles dry conditions

What are the cons? Weather knocked out half crop

Review:

I planted these in my urban garden along my south facing wall, 6-8 hrs sun, not expecting more than a novelty planting. About 2 mos into the growing season they were doing well, even if I forgot to water them when it didn't rain. However, once the stalks got about 6 feet high, they had a tendency to bend in half. I had planted some in rows and some in a close cluster; planting arrangement did not seem to change this. A late season storm took out the biggest plants. Two of the 6 planted in a row made it, only one in the cluster planting made it to tassel. Those that did make it put out beautiful ears of dark blue corn. I had only one cob that had sporadic kernels. Made tortillas from the dried corn and they were quite good. Will do more research to possible solutions to weak corn stalks and try again this year!

What are the pros? Beautiful color

What are the cons? Low yield

Review:

Seeds had a very high germination rate. Corn grew fast and strong, until mother nature unleashed a much needed rain storm in early July. High winds and rain came right at pollen shed. About half my crop did not get pollinated properly, The corn that made it has nice 12 inch ears. Look forward to seeing it fully mature.
