Chapalote Corn

80% of 100
This incredible flint/popcorn may be the oldest corn variety grown in North America: carbon dating says it could be 4,000 years old! Long, slim ears are filled with kernels of luminous amber to dark brown. Drought and heat tolerant, Chapalote is adapted to southerly latitudes, and its performance farther north is unknown. Chapalote can be popped or used in pinole, polenta, and many other corn dishes, as the meal is delightfully sweet. It was rediscovered in the 1950s in remote, northwestern Mexico. Since that time, its superior qualities have captured the imagination and affection of archaeologists, gardeners and chefs alike!
