Anasazi Sweet Corn
Ancient variety, reputed to be from seeds found in Anasazi ruins. Possibly the oldest sweet corn still in existence. This southwestern land race heirloom is drought-resistant and doesn’t require the extreme fertility and weed-free conditions needed by many modern corns. Likes warmth. 7-8’ plants with 2 multicolored ears, 7” long. Grown by Jonathan Spero, who writes "Anasazi is a true land race variety, variable in many ways. Ear length and diameter, degree of sweetness, color combinations, and plant height all vary. In older times, variability was highly desired... People wanted corn that produced food come wet or dry, hot or cold, and with a minimum of added inputs."
The harvest window for cornis short--test by breaking a kernel with your fingernail. Clear juice means it is immature and pasty means that it is overmature. Aim to harvest when juice is milky. 60 seeds
