Blue Michoacan corn is a native blue corn from Michoacan. The people of this region, considered by many to be the origin of corn, continue to cultivate the native corn as they have for over 7000 years.
Michoacan corn is a warm-season vegetable, meaning it requires warm temperatures to germinate and grow. Plant corn seeds when soil temperatures are at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit after the last frost date. Full sun and well-draining, rich soil are a must for this crop. Corn will benefit from a 2-inch layer of compost mixed into the top 6 inches of soil at the planting site. Plant seeds in groups of three spaced every nine to 12 inches along a row. Cover each seed grouping with 1 1/2 inches of soil and water thoroughly. Since this corn variety is open-pollinating, three to four short rows spaced 30 to 36 inches apart allow for adequate pollination.
