85-100 days. The stunningly beautiful ears of corn 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? Beautiful, Yummy, Prolific

Review:

Easily my favorite corn to date. Great germination, fast growth, loves hot weather, above average yield. Also the high quality of corn meal it produces cant be beat. My go-to polenta cornmeal for sure. I keep trying other varieties in addition to this one. I'm starting to think I'm wasting my time with the others. Oaxacan green dent is a winner all the way.

Review:

This year, 2018, the Central Coast of California has been having a very long cool Spring. I planted six packets of Oaxacan Geen Dent corn in three different garden plots at two different times, including early spring no-till beds and mid-spring rototilled beds. EVERY SINGLE SHOOT (about 700 seeds) got eaten by some critter the very next night after the shoot emerged. I think it was slugs or snails. The Glass Gems did great last year and the Atomic Orange corn in a nearby bed is knee-high on day 42 so I can't explain it. But it's time to try a different crop where I'd hoped this corn would grow...

Review:

I trialed nearly 30 varieties in 2017. Most did not survive the heat, humidity, wind, bugs, disease, worms or vermin here in Virginia. This was one of the winners. Bugs or something did get to the tips of some of the ears. Full ears otherwise. I have yet to grind into meal and see what it tastes like.

Review:

This corn was fun to grow. The color on it was really nice (just make sure to leave it on the stalk until the color develops completely), I hand-pollinated some of the color and the rest I just left it be and it did end up cross-pollinating with some of the neighbors corn and actually produced some interesting metallic sheen gray-green color ears. Some racoons went after it for a night or two but then left the patch alone and never touched it again. I didn't have any problems with it getting moldy or earwigs. I ground some up and made cornbread with it and it tasted amazing! Overall, I definitely plant this again

What are the pros? Beautiful in my fall decor

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was an unexpected surprise, as a first time grower of ornamental corn I wasn't expecting it to be so beautiful. The ears were a very nice size for decorating, smaller than an average ear, which made them a perfect size for decorating. I will grow these again this coming season.
