Hopi Turquoise Corn

Truly breathtaking blue corn said to originate from the Hopi people of the Southwest. This variety yields lovely ears with colors ranging from slate blue to brilliant turquoise with some surprise purples. Used locally in an atole and ground for cornmeal, kernels are both flour and dent types, both often on the same ear. Ears typically run 6” to 12” long, and are produced usually one per 4 to 5-foot stalk. It has grown well even at 8000 ft elevation, indicating tolerance to wide temperature swings and cool soil. Fairly early to mature, being ready for harvest at about 90 days from sowing. Our grower received his original seed in 1986 from John “Eesawu” Kimmey, an educator and visionary of sustainable native agriculture, who worked extensively with the Hopi people and founded the Talavaya Center. An early heirloom conservation project.

What are the pros? Beautiful color

Review:

I found a high germination rate with pro mix for starting the seeds. I even transplanted my corn, which its not found of but I wanted to try and get a jump on the season it was fine. I fed it with Sea compost all summer and got 12 ft tall stalks that came beautiful. Yes there's maybe 2-3 ears per stalk but since it's a corn heirloom, I'm not crazy surprised by this. I'm going to make more room in the yard next year for these beauties.

Review:

Bought this to try, had a very low germination percentage causing low qty of plants. 1-2 ears per stalk. Stalks dying out already end of August. Beautiful looking kernels though.
