Hopi Blue Corn
Zea mays 'Hopi Blue'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Traditional crop of the Hopi of Arizona, not only for food, but also for its spiritual and ritual significance. The beautiful dark blue kernels are ground and made into a traditional paper-thin piki bread and a dense cake called qomi. It makes delicious tortillas, sweet and nutty, as well as cornbread, corn chips and pancake mixes. It has 20% more protein than white or yellow corn and has a lower glycemic index. Well adapted for the dryland farming of the American southwest, but also does surprisingly well in wetter eastern gardens. Ht. 150cm/5ft. 100-110 days.
