110 days.A delicious blue corn for making breads, muffins, chips, and more! Fine flavor and lots of nutrition! This Native American heirloom corn from Pueblo Pojoaque in New Mexico is traditionally grown to make blue corn atole. Po’suwaegeh is the Tewa name for “Place where there is abundant water.” 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. Strong and tall stalks bear 10- to 12-inch ears with deep blue kernels.
