Hopi Purple Corn

         
 
2 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(85-95 days) This traditional variety from the Hopi nation, has been grown in the high desert under dry land farming practices for generations. The seed stewardship of the Hopi people have made this flour corn variety a standout choice for drought-tolerance and shorter days to maturity for a flour corn. The bushy stalks produce 8” long ears, with striking purple kernels with hues of pink. The unique coloring makes this corn higher in protein than other flour corns, by up to 14% and the kernels grind into a fine flour that can be the base for many culinary uses such as tortillas, baking and tamales.

Review:

I planted this corn late in the season, late May in Northern VA. The growing season here is also shorter than my home region in the Ozarks. The corn was planted in four stalk pods spaced closely together for pollination. This corn has not missed a lick, it stands against heavy wind and the constant rains we have had this summer. There are 3 ears on about 60 % of the stalks. The only babysitting I have done is to shake pollen for pollination and regularly kill Japanese Beetles that eat at the silks. All that being said, my ears are nearly all appearing full and the harvest within a couple weeks is shaping up to put my Bantam 12 row to shame. I hope it is as pretty as what Baker's Creek has photographed. Purple tinted Cornbread is my aim.
