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? 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.

What are the pros? the green kernals

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was my first attempt at growing a field corn. With a little help from customer service, to figure out when to stop watering and when to harvest, I was able to harvest 41 cobs from half the package of seeds planted. I have already made green masa for tortillas. This is one plant that gives, the kernels store well, and I will be able to enjoy throughout the year, knowing I grew it organically. It does require lots of water, especially with this year's record heat, but this was worth it. The tall stalks did start to bend over as the cobs got heavier but I manage to stake them until they were dry enough.

Review:

I had a bunch of varieties of corn seeds that were 3 years old, so I planted them this year to see if anything came up. I didn't have the time to get good soil added to a newly-tilled area, so these grew in my crappy, clay-and-rock dirt. I called it my "corn Hunger Games", and whichever variety did the best in my harsh conditions would be planted next year. Oaxacan Green was the tallest, healthiest, most prolific, and earliest corn in the patch. I had a lot of my new shoots get eaten by cutworms, but a patch of 5 or so made it together, and I had no problems with pollination even with the small amount of plants. Each stalk had 4 ears on them, and the stalks were about 8' high. The ears are gorgeous! I have not tried eating them, as I grew them for seed for next year.

What are the pros? Beautiful, Yummy, Prolific

What are the cons? none

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.
