These seeds came originally from Hopi Elders, the history of this corn goes back to the Anasazi people some 500 years ago. The seed corn was found in clay pots, hence the name. It grows very tall in the tunnel and gives large cobs of varying stunning colours from violet and black to shades of red, yellow, gold and cream truly as beautiful as jewels. This corn is a maize type, more for grinding into flour than eating as a sweet ‘corn on the cob’.
