85-100 days. The stunningly beautiful ears come in a range of greens, from yellow-green through emerald, with every imaginable shade in between. The deeply dented kernels have been used for centuries by the Zapotec people to make a regional favorite, green-flour tamales. Also makes excellent cornbread! The 6- to 10- inch ears are superb in arrangements and for fall decoration. Plants reach 7 feet, are very drought tolerant, and perform well even at higher latitudes. Amazing and cool!

What are the pros? Plants start easily

Review:

This was an interesting experience. Have never tried growing corn for flour, but thought I would give this green corn a try. I must have done something wrong, my ears are only 2" long and vary wildly in color. One is a dark green, almost black color. One is every shade of green plus some yellow, and another ear is maroon with some very dark green. The plants grew very well and are about 8 feet tall. I interspersed the corn with some of the Giant Sunflowers that grew very well also. I am going to get some more next year and try again in a different location. I will defiantly try it again.

Review:

Success with first time growing corn! Grew this in the three sisters method with Algonquin pumpkins and cranberry beans. Did 5 mounds with 6 stalks each. Didn't water them after they got more than a foot tall, and just went out and shook the stalks once in a while. Each stalk had 2-3 ears and they were fat! Had a couple with Mexican truffles even! Got enough corn for about half a dozen batches of corn tortillas. Definitely planting more next year!

What are the pros? Flavorful corn flour

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was my first attempt at growing Oaxacan Green in summer 2018 and I was very pleased with the results. I planted in mid-April and we had a very wet spring and summer here and the corn did just fine. I let the corn dry and nixtamalized it and then ground it into corn flour and made tortillas and tortilla chips. Many of my kids say these are the best tortilla chips they've ever had. I will grow it again next summer. Can't wait!

What are the pros? Very good germination in 2018

What are the cons? A few plants lacked vigor

Review:

This corn was easy to grow. I planted in hills about 2 feet apart and fertilized with blood meal to start. Germination was well over 80% and vigor was mostly good. A few failed to thrive despite side dressing at 2 leaves with urea. The corn grinds up finely and doesn't make good grits but it does make awesome flour though.

What are the pros? easy to grow, low maintenance

What are the cons? none

Review:

The corn is so beautiful and on most stalks I got 2-3 ears per plant. I didn't water it as much as I could have but it still developed beautifully. I did have a problem with caterpillars but they only ate the tips of the corn.The corn had a kaleidescope of different shades of green, blue, yellow, gray and even purple. It is sooo beautiful.
