Blue Michoacan Corn - RARE heirloom seeds


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.

Beautiful Mexican corn. Germinated well and growing fast!

The seeds are packaged nicely and came quickly. The seeds are just like described in the description. I will save these seeds for my seed bank in case of emergency, so I will not be germinating this year. I am collecting Mexican corn seeds and am excited to have Michoacan corn from where my grandparents are from! If seller has any other Michoacan heirloom corn I will be buying.

The blue corn germinated fast and is now growing vigorous stalks. We look forward to our first harvest!

Can't wait for these to grow

The packaging is really cute and reusable. I will be storing my seeds in the pouch. Compare to others seeds I will say a medium-large seed. The instructions are simple and right to the point. Will be buying again for sure
