The Zapotec Indians have grown this gorgeous heirloom in Oaxaca for centuries. The blue-green kernels range from sage to malachite. Oaxacan Green makes a spectacular ornamental and it also turns into wonderful flour. The nutty flavor makes delicious green tortillas or corn bread. Oaxacan Green produces ears from 6" to 10" long on sturdy, drought-tolerant 7' plants. This is worth growing just for its beauty. 85 days. 50 seeds Not permitted in Canada or Australia.
