Maiz Morado or Kulli Corn

The darkest colored corn known, it has a most delicious flavor and is believed to have one of the highest amounts 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 a flour corn or as a flavorful sweet corn when picked young. 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 it into a beautiful flour/meal. Eight feet or taller and 100 days or so to maturity.

What are the pros? Very delicious kernels

What are the cons? need support

Review:

If you are looking for a sweet corn to eat off the cob, this is probably not for you unless you like purple hands and face. But other than that this is great corn. I wore gloves and cut the kernels off the corn and used them pan roasted in salads and salsas. Their flavor was amazing! So sweet! Half the ears I cooked fresh and the other half I've let dry to use as flour. I'm excited to make purple corn bread! Growing the corn was not difficult and the plants grew well. I wish I had hilled them once they got over three feet. We had a very rainy late summer and many of the stalks fell over and I had to stake them for support. Other reviews have mentioned that the corn ears weren't consistent and that was also my experience but the differences didn't effect the flavor or anything else I care about.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Needs a longer season for ears

Review:

I had purchased seeds from Baker Creek 3 years ago before I realized that I would need a tiller for my rock-filled clay wonderland, so they sat in my basement until this year. We had a very long wait until it got warm enough to plant outside, so I did not get any ears. I did, however, get 12' tall plants that were incredibly healthy-looking, despite not having great dirt, an early drought, and cutworms killing off a bunch of my plants. I did notice a ton of aphids around the tassels at the top, so I will keep an eye out for them next year. The pollen coming off of these guys is no joke, so expect a ton of cross-pollination unless you're very careful if you plan on planting more than one variety.

What are the pros? Color

What are the cons? Plants grew tall but thin

Review:

My mother was really excited to try this corn. She also has the greenest thumb of all so we thought, for sure, we'd have the best yield. Unfortunately, the plants grew tall and very thin, at least the ones that did grow (which was about 5 plants only). Each plant yielded 0-2 ears, and the ears were not fully developed and were abnormal. It was very disappointing. We won't be giving this a try again.

What are the pros? Excellent, authentic flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Dad is from Peru and used these to make Chichi Morado last night. He was very happy with the taste. The cobs didn't turn out picture perfect but I had some nutrient deficiency issues with my tomatoes so I am thinking the corn had a similar issue. First time growing corn and these were easy. Japanese beetles attacked but foliage damage was limited.
