Zea Mays - Organically Grown

Blue Hopi Corn is a old heirloom  maize variety used primarily for flour and making tortillas. This blue flour maize originates from the American south west. This Blue variety can also be eaten fresh by harvesting the corn at a young stage allowing them to be roasted or baked.

Plants can grow 1.5-2m tall producing 2 large cobs per plant when grown well. Provide ample moisture and nitrogen based fertiliser (animal manure) to get the best results. Harvest cobs when the sheath turns brown for grinding flour.

Sow Spring-Summer

Seed packet contains approx 30 seeds

Open pollinated variety, Non - Hybrid, Non - GMO

Corn/Maize Success Story

We received this seed as part of our corn/maize project. With many heirloom varieties no longer being grown in Australia we felt there was a need to find varieties, get them grown out and re-distribute seeds amongst home gardeners to ensure they are easily available into the future. Blue Hopi has been a success and was grown by some local organic farmers allowing seeds to be available to the public. We will continue this project into the future and we are always on the lookout for unusual varieties or people will to grow a crop for us.
