What are the pros? Easy to use
What are the cons? None
I place the seeds couple weeks before spring here, they grew nicely 5 feet and now I notice is turning like an egg roll, it is dying from the bottom and smell to decompose food. I need help with my corn. I love this plant is so sad see it dying after so much care

What are the pros? Interresting corn
What are the cons? Late maturing.
I had a hot summer and late frost or it might not have made it. Grew to a little over 10 feet tall.
One plant had two smaller ears that had all red corn kernels. The red ones looks exactly like
the black but were all red. Ears were about 5 feet up on the stalk.

What are the pros? Texture, flavor & color
What are the cons? N/A
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.

What are the pros? Magnificent plant
What are the cons? Long growing
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!!!
What are the pros? Multi-purpose, easy to grow
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.
