Peru

Joseph Simcox introduces us the fascinating and historic seeds of Peru. Varieties that have been lovingly cherished by native cultures. Most of these seeds are offered here for the first time in North America. We test germination and believe seeds to be true to type. In most cases they have not been yet been trialled in our Baker Creek Gardens. Corn varieties in his collection have not had genetic testing due to small quantities on hand. By purchasing seeds you are directly helping sponsor Joseph Simcox on his botanical adventures to bring us more of the earth's genetic treasures. Most varieties are extremely limited, often under 100 packets available. Thank you for your interest and support! This seed is brought to us by Botanical Explorer, Joseph Simcox: learn more here
