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 120-150 days to maturity.

Review:

2018 was the first time I’ve ever grown corn. I tried four different varieties and Maiz Morado was my favorite. It survived 2 hail storms and did fairly well in our arid climate and short growing season. The best part was getting to eat this delicious, beautiful corn. We used it in soups and it was wonderful although it tints it a purple-pink. I will grow this again and can’t wait for the next harvest.

Review:

When I saw maize Morado on this site, I immediately read about this variety on the Internet. I really wanted to buy and plant in Siberia. Planted through seedlings. Some plants have reached 5.5 meters in height. But the cob is almost immature. However, we collected all the black cobs and dried them. Then they took out the seeds, and the rest was ground into powder. Now often make the drink chicha Morada. It is very tasty and beautiful to look at. Besides gaining strength. This year, the seedlings will be planted earlier under cover, so as not to destroy the frost. Thanks!!!

Review:

I was attracted to this corn because I lived in Peru for 3 months in my 20's and enjoyed the Chicha Morado drink that is made from it. It grew very tall here in East Central Indiana, and I was afraid that I wasn't going to get any corn out of it as the ears didn't show up until at least 60 days in, but when they did the stalks tried to grow around 4 ears per stalk! It can be harvested early as sweet corn, though it has a distinct taste that I don't like as a sweet corn. The best Chicha is made from the sweet corn though, so I used it for that. I also left some ears on the stalk to dry and ground them to make a Ash colored corn meal that turns deep purple when used as corn bread. I was very pleased with the vitality of this seed. I think I planted 28 plants and got 21 plants to fully grow. The one drawback may be that if you aren't using it for Chicha Morado, you may want a different dark corn as the distinct flavor may be off putting.

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.
