Maize - Heritage Corn - 1000 Hills
Heritage Corn Variety: 1000 Hills
These stunning multi-coloured kernels can be ground down into a flour and use as polenta or meal. The flour can be used to make tacos and corn chips, or they can be left as a whole cob and used as gorgeous decorations.
It is important to plant your corn according to the grid for effective pollination as corn is wind pollinated. The cop can be picked earlier - at the milk stage and cooked as corn on the cob. They are relatively sweet. The colours at the milk stage will not be fully developed. to test for the milk stage; pull the husk back slightly and stick your nail into a soft kernel & if a milky liquid comes out, then it is ready.
