Montana Morado Maize 2021 Seed - 2.8 oz (approx. 270 kernels)

SKU: HP21-2.8

Net Weight 2.8 oz (approximately 270 kernels)

This striking black corn is an elite superfood with extraordinarily high levels of anthocyanins for health & healing. Plants are easy to grow, reach 4-5 feet. They yield long, slender ears with 8 uniform rows of shiny black kernels.

Montana Morado Maize was bred from 100% Native N. American heirloom Indian corns, like its sister-line, Painted Mountain Corn. Even in short, climate-stressed Montana seasons, this corn matures quickly & productively, yielding astonishing soft flour starch for many purposes, including the best cornbread!

This naturally diverse open-pollinated corn is capable of adapting to different locations and you can grow it year after year.


    Plant the kernels direct into well prepared seedbed. May 15 or earlier (bred to recover from early frosts). Plant 1-3 inches deep and 10-12 inches apart within rows. Plant in a block for dependable pollination, away from other corns if you want to save your own seed. Corn needs full sunshine. Control weeds early. Depending on heat, corn dries in 90-110 days. Allow kernels and husks to dry completely on the plant before picking. Harvest before a hard freeze.
