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.

Review:

It's August and this corn is just a touch behind the others that were planted 2 or 3 weeks later which are already growing cobs. I have 3 corn beds going around my property, and this one is starting to silk out, but I am guessing the patience will be well deserved. The center veins on the leaves are purple which looks beautiful, and I believe the corn will yield really nice. So far so good and germination rate was 100/100 on the batches I recieved from Baker Creek. Great Job!

What are the pros? It's pretty

What are the cons? Doesn't grow well

Review:

Planted 12 of these seeds, only two sprouted. After 4 months, they're still only 6 inches tall. All of the rest of my corn varieties are about knee high (where they should be). Not sure what is wrong with this corn, but the direction say 100 days to harvest. Um...it's been 120 days and it's 6 inches tall. It's been 6 inches tall for the last two months. I had high hopes for this corn. We'll see if it does anything or if it stays just a pretty grass.

Review:

Started these under grow lights to get a head start on a short Alabama season. With in 3 days the roots were looking for solid ground. I placed in the garden on april the 4th and now 46 days later they are almost 5 foot tall. I will be direct sowing a second crop ,I'm pretty sure I can get two crops in a short season as fast as this grows.

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.
