Hopi Purple Corn

100% of 100

105 days This traditional variety from the Hopi nation has been grown in the high desert under dryland farming practices for generations. The seed stewardship of the Hopi people has 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 baking, tortillas, and tamales.
