Black Sweet Aztec Corn (Zea mays)
Black Sweet Aztec Corn (Zea mays): a heirloom variety from Mexico, suitable for soups and boiling. Excellent flavour, early ripening.
For the production of seeds you should leave some cobs to reach the proper maturation.
For consumption, just as per every sweet corn, collect them when, by putting some pressure with your nail, it releases some liquid.
Great for grilling.
This variety is widespread in South America, it is one of the ingredients of the “Chicha Morada” drink.
Good and early, it is ideal for those who love corn and don't want to buy confectionary products at the supermarket, 25 seeds will give you a whole bunch of black, juicy cobs.
