The darkest colored corn known, it has a most delicious flavor and is belived to have the highest amount of healthy anthocyanins of any corn! The ancient Maiz Morado, also known as Kulli, originated in Peru in the Andes Highlands. This is a special selection that has been bred for the past 20+ years in New Mexico to adapt to our North American latitudes and will grow and produce ears easily in most American gardens. This ancient corn is excellent as both a flour corn or picked young, as a flavorful sweet corn. It is also used in South America to brew a special and highly revered drink known as chicha morado. This drink was an important ceremonial aspect to the Incan Empire and civilizations before them. We love to make purple corn juice with cinnamon, clove and pineapple--a refreshing elixir bursting with antioxidants! Locals also use it to dye fabrics and cloth, as well as grinding into a beautiful flour/meal. Eight feet or taller and 100 days or so to maturity.

What are the pros? Huge plants

What are the cons? Long season

Review:

I loved the extremely tall plants these seed produced. They loomed large in my garden and required staking following an extremely windy, rainy period. They did produce a few small ears. Apparently I missed some of the ears because the next spring, some stalks came up volunteer. It was a fun plant to grow.
