June 2018 introduces you to the Oaxacan Green Dent Corn Seed

Bracelet | Necklace | Earrings | Necklace & matching Earrings w/Leaf Motif

My brother Doug introduced Oaxacan Green Dent to me when he first grew it 12 years ago our family farm garden. He was so excited about it but when he handed me that first ear my heart sank. I thought it was . . . well . . . homely! All I could think was: WHAT on earth am I going to do with THIS???" Where were those shiny brightly colored kernels glinting beautifully in the sun that he told me about?!? But I mustered up gratitude for his effort to force out a subdued "Wow." And, of course, this corn ended up one of the most interesting, conversation-starting, unique seeds in my collection!

Oaxacan Green Dent corn has purportedly been grown by the indigenous Zapotec people in the Oaxacan Valley of Mexico for centuries but this "history" is disputed becaise no archaeological evidence supports it originating there. Whatever its exact origin, Oaxacan Green Dent is truly a beauty.
